Re: SMURF amplifier block list

I have a B assignment. I have switched infrastructure segments
with /22 masking. Do you mean to say that the host number
range on each /22 masked segment is not continuous 1 through 1022,
but has several holes instead.? The network seems to be working
properly. I may be in big trouble!
None of my TCP/IP courses or books or Cisco CDs have prepared me for
such a surprise. Please point me to a text which will explain this.
Thanks for your help.
