Network Classless Inter Domain Routing (CIDR) Cheat Sheet – POFTUT

# Network Classless Inter Domain Routing (CIDR) Cheat Sheet

Internet and most of the network infrastructures uses IP Protocol. IP protocol uses IP addresses in order to connect different hosts and networks over globe. Classless Inter Domain Routing or CIDR is hierarchical IP addressing scheme used to set IP addresses to the hosts and network. Here we will learn how to calculate IP address, Network Address, Broadcast Address, Network Mask and provide these as cheat sheet.

We will calculate given network parameters in this part we can use following cheat sheet. In this example we will use `192.168.1.0` as network address. We need 10 IP address for our host. If we look to the table we see that Potential host numbers a 2 and its multiply. So we will use 16 host line which have `/28` network mask or `255.255.255.240` . So the network information will be like below.

```Network Address: 192.168.1.0

Host IP Range: 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.10

Actual Useable Host IP Count:  14

# CIDR Cheat Sheet

Here is some explanation

• `Prefix` is bit count for network address
• `Amount Of a Class C` is how many C class network can be created in this network
• `Potential Hosts` is the count of IP numbers
• `Actual Hosts` is the count of usable IP numbers because 1 IP is used for network address and 1 IP is used for broadcast purposes.
• `Netmask` is decimal presentation of the prefix with IP format.
