I have a B assignment. I have switched infrastructure segments
with /22 masking. Do you mean to say that the host number
range on each /22 masked segment is not continuous 1 through 1022,
but has several holes instead.? The network seems to be working
properly. I may be in big trouble!
None of my TCP/IP courses or books or Cisco CDs have prepared me for
such a surprise. Please point me to a text which will explain this.
Thanks for your help.

Then again, filtering any packets to or from x.x.x.255 would have a

the problem with that thinking, of course, is going to crop up when you
encounter /23's and greater.
No, IMHO, the comment stands: no matter _what_ size your network is, if
you assign host addresses with a .0 or .255 final octet, things may
break, and you deserve what you get.
