Re: [OT] IP Address scheme for branch office

Hi All

Thanks for the replies.  In answer to your questions, we are actually
using Class A addresses globally (sorry, I didn't use the actual IP's
in my original plan).  The EMEA region has been assigned one Class B
network to sub-divide amongst our offices.  So unfortunately the
solutions above won't fit our requirements.

Of course, assigning a /21 subnet to each office will meet the IP
address requirements.  But it won't give us a standard set of
"numbers" that we can use in each office.  I'm sure other global
companies have this same predicament, but I'm wondering how they solve
it !  Assigning a /20 subnet would resolve the problem but would
result is 4 wasted subnets per office.

Maybe I'm thinking "inside the box here" and need to come up with a
different solution other than using the same number for each office.
But unfortunately I'm at a bit of a brick wall :o(  I'd appreciate any
guidance/help/ideas anybody else has on this.  I'm sure other global
companies face the same challenge, so I'm wondering how they get
around this

thanks in advance
