The netmasks table contains the network masks used to implement standard Internet subnetting.
The netmasks table has three
|Addr||IP number of the network|
|Mask||Network mask to use on the network|
|Comment||Optional comment about the entry|
For network numbers, you can use the conventional IP dot notation used by workstation addresses, but leave zeroes in place of the workstation addresses. For example, the following entry:
means that class B network 22.214.171.124 should have 24 bits in its subnet field, and 8 bits in its host field.
