i am wondering if i can get a ip such as..

???.???.8.0
???.???.16.0

Hi Andrew,

If you're in control of assigning the IPs via your own network then the answer is "you should be able to".

You could do something like this:
Computer 1: 192.168.8.0
Subnet: 255.255.0.0

Computer 2: 192.168.16.0
Subnet: 255.255.0.0

Computer 3: 192.168.24.0
Subnet: 255.255.0.0

Assigning each computer the 255.255.0.0 subnet will allow them to all see each other. If you wanted to change the 168 on each computer to a different number, then the subnet would need to be 255.0.0.0. Simply put, if there's a 255 in that particular octet then it only sees computers with matching numbers in that octet.

Out of curiousity, why the divisible by 8, etc?
