Variable Length Subnet Table For IPv4

Status of this Memo

This memo provides information for the Internet community. This memo does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

This memo clarifies issues surrounding subnetting IP networks by providing a standard subnet table. This table includes subnetting for Class A, B, and C networks, as well as Network IDs, host ranges and IP broadcast addresses with emphasis on Class C subnets.

This memo is intended as an informational companion to Subneting RFC [1] and the Hosts Requirements RFC [2].

Introduction

The growth of networking since the time of STD 5, RFC 950 and STD 3, RFC 1123 has resulted in larger and more complex network subnetting. The previously mentioned RFCs comprise the available guidelines for creating subnetted networks, however they have occassionaly been misinterpreted leading to confusion regarding proper subnetting.

This document itemizes the potential values for IPv4 subnets. Additional information is provided for Hex and Decmial values, classfull equivalants, and number of addresses available within the indicated block.

RFC 1878 Subnet Table December 1995

Table

The following table lists the variable length subnets from 1 to 32, the CIDR [3] representation form (/xx) and the Decmial equivalents. (M = Million, K=Thousand, A,B,C= traditional class values)
