Linux Subnetting

Dear friends am confused with the logic behind subnetting. i am learning from video tutorial and quite didn't get it
so my question is as below

Quote:
Subnetting a class C : 255.255.255.128/25 bits
After subnetting class c address by borrowing one bit from host to network , it leaves host with 7 bit and network increases bit to 25 bits .

According to my video tutorial it stated that theoretically class C address has
one network and 255 hosts. And after subnetting 2 networks with 127 hosts. but i dont think so .... Smilie

i believe class c has around 2097150 network and 255 hosts. i didn't get that logic . please help me get that right in my head.

Subnetting

We have subnetted our Internal Network. We used an I.P. range of 172.16.16.0-254, 172.16.17.0-254, 172.16.18.0-254, 172.16.19.0-254 and mask 255.255.252.0. We created a subnet range of 172.16.10.0-254 and maske 255.255.255.0. Our routers are configure to route to approprate network. We are able... (2 Replies)

NAME
netmasks - network mask database SYNOPSIS
/etc/inet/netmasks /etc/netmasks DESCRIPTION
The netmasks file contains network masks used to implement IP subnetting. It supports both standard subnetting as specified in RFC-950 and variable length subnetting as specified in RFC-1519. When using standard subnetting there should be a single line for each network that is subnetted in this file with the network number, any number of SPACE or TAB characters, and the network mask to use on that network. Network numbers and masks may be specified in the conventional IP `.' (dot) notation (like IP host addresses, but with zeroes for the host part). For example, 128.32.0.0 255.255.255.0 can be used to specify that the Class B network 128.32.0.0 should have eight bits of subnet field and eight bits of host field, in addition to the standard sixteen bits in the network field. When using variable length subnetting, the format is identical. However, there should be a line for each subnet with the first field being the subnet and the second field being the netmask that applies to that subnet. The users of the database, such as ifconfig(1M), perform a lookup to find the longest possible matching mask. It is possible to combine the RFC-950 and RFC-1519 form of subnet masks in the net- masks file. For example, 128.32.0.0 255.255.255.0 128.32.27.0 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.16 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.32 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.48 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.64 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.80 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.96 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.112 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.128 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.144 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.160 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.176 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.192 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.208 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.224 255.255.255.240 128.32.27.240 255.255.255.240 128.32.64.0 255.255.255.192 can be used to specify different netmasks in different parts of the 128.32.0.0 Class B network number. Addresses 128.32.27.0 through 128.32.27.255 have a subnet mask with 28 bits in the combined network and subnet fields (often referred to as the subnet field) and 4 bits in the host field. Furthermore, addresses 128.32.64.0 through 128.32.64.63 have a 26 bits in the subnet field. Finally, all other addresses in the range 128.32.0.0 through 128.32.255.255 have a 24 bit subnet field. Invalid entries are ignored. SEE ALSO
