Number of IP addresses available- network newbie(ish)
Hi, we have a win2k network with xp pro clients. Although I didn't setup the network or server originally, I do try and maintain it in my spare time (I'm a full class teacher the rest of the time).
We had some issues with IP conflicts with some printers, and I am looking into dhcp reservations, which looks fine. However, in oder to try and organise the IP layout, I was wondering how many ip addresses are available for our network?
The DHCP scope is as follows:
Subnet: 255.255.248.0 (length 21)
Am I right in saying that we have 154 IP addresses available? Don't think so, but not sure how to work it out. We haven't go that many pieces of networked equipment yet, but I'm sure it won't be long.
Many thanks for your help.
