VLM Design Drill #2

The boss of our #CCNA is at it again today with another VLSM project. The scenario helps you exercise your brain in a VLSM world. As with all the VLSM design drills, you are given an existing internetwork with some pre-existing subnets, and you need to add some new subnet(s) to the design. What subnet would you pick so you don’t cause an overlap? Today’s post lists the question; next time, the answer. Details below the fold.

Your boss wants you to add a subnet to an existing design. The existing design already has these five subnets:

  1. 192.168.1.168/29
  2. 192.168.1.240/28
  3. 192.168.1.128/29
  4. 192.168.1.96/30
  5. 192.168.1.192/27

The boss has made these choices:

  • He will add 3 new subnets
  • All subnets will be part of class C network 192.168.1.0
  • He will use one mask only for all the new subnets
  • He has not decided which mask yet
  • He wants to use the numerically highest possible subnet numbers

While the boss works to make his final choice for a mask, he wants you to do the planning. He has narrowed down the choices to three masks, as listed here. Your job: for each mask, find the three subnet IDs that would meet all the criteria, without overlapping the existing subnets.

1) /29

2) /28

3) /27

Ask questions if you have them. Also, check out the ICND1 100-101 Cert Guide’s chapter 20 for some tips on finding these overlaps, or check the other VLSM drills here in the blog.
