Hi,


>The original spec actually says 172.16.0.0/12 or 192.168.0.0/16. See

>RFC1918, Private IP addresses.
>But yes, most users use 172.16.0.0/16 and 192.168.0.0/24.


you are completely right, it is just that if you use /12 and /16 you can't have
different networks :)

but yes, you are right! good catch!

(I admit, it has been a long time since my cisco courses!)

cheers and thanks,

G.
