ping 192.168.1.63 (all is ok with wireshark on e1/0)
ping 192.168.1.127 (all is ok with wireshark on e1/1)
ping 192.168.1.191 (all is ok with wireshark on e1/2)
ping 192.168.1.255 (all is ok with wireshark on e1/3)
I had understood that it was possible to broadcast also all subnets at the same time, but I am not able to find the right broadcast address. I had thought that the right address was 192.168.1.255 because it had all 1 in the subnet portion. But as I have a specific subnet with all 1 in the subnet portion, that broadcast is forwarded only on e1/3. So, how is it possible? Why do some books call 192.168.1.255 all hosts in all subnets? Thanks.
I don't know of a way to ping all those subnets at the same time. 192.168.1.255 works on the last one because that is where it falls within your network scheme . You would have to ping the individual broadcast addresses for each subnet. If your space was say a single /24 space then you could ping anyone within the 192.168.1.0/24 . If I'm wrong someone else can chime in ...
