Abstract

The appropriate configuration of IP addresses and subnet masks for router network interfaces is generally a prerequisite to the correct functioning of routing protocols. Consideration of various items, including underlying link capabilities and connectivity, geographical topology, available address blocks, assumed traffic patterns etc., are used when determining the appropriate network topology and the associated IP interface configuration.
