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, can be used to specify that the Class B network 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, can be used to specify different netmasks in different parts of the Class B network number. Addresses through 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 through have a 26 bits in the subnet field. Finally, all other addresses in the range through have a 24 bit subnet field. Invalid entries are ignored. SEE ALSO
