Actually, we just figured this one out for our machine too but we had
to use it like:
User Property: INTERNET-SUBNET-MASKS (("184.108.40.206" "255.255.0.0"))
That's the default subnet mask for such addresses -- if that's the correct
subnet mask then you're not doing subnetting, and you don't actually need
The default subnet mask depends on the first octet of the address. If it's
1-127 the default mask is 255.0.0.0, 128-191 is 255.255.0.0, and 192-254 is
It really seems to depend on exactly how your network addresses
Of course it does. Why else would it need to be a configuration parameter?
My answer used 255.255.255.0 as the subnet mask because he said that their
Unix systems use ffffff00 (Unix requires the subnet mask to be specified in
hex as a 32-bit unsigned number, rather than in dotted decimal notation).
