    what? subnet mask /32 is reserved for broadcasting, you can't really have hosts in that. Have you try to create a scope and reseve IPs for the clients you need? You could do that but surely not give /32 subnet.

    this may help:

    no, you cant. .255 range is set for broadcasting only. If I remember rightly you can only go up to 255.255.255.252 and you can only have 2 hosts....and beyond that its broadcasting range, although why you would go to that range is beyond me!

    thank you so much nephilim
    we can use this subnet mask 255.255.255.252
    but i cant use subnet mask 255.255.255.255 , i will try to do that

    i do that in linux and mikrotik , but in windows server there must be edit some options to accept the subnet mask 32

    Using 255.255.255.252 only allows for 2 pcs to be used!!!

    At the very least use 255.255.255.224 to allow for some expansion!
