In the latter mentioned post, I explained how you can use simple additions or subtractions to work out the First Usable Address, the Last Usable Address and the Broadcast Address of a subnet.
As the post was quite long, I thought I should re post the formulas in case they got lost in the sea of text.
Here they are:
- First Address = Network Address + 1
- Broadcast Address = Next Network Address – 1
- Last Address = Broadcast Address – 1
If they make no sense to you, please re-read my previous posts for more information.
