An administrator must assign static IP addresses to the servers in a network. For network 192.168.20.24/29, the router is assigned the first usable host address while the sales server is given the last usable host address. Which of the following should be entered into the IP properties box for the sales server?
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D. E.
To determine the appropriate IP address configuration for the sales server, we need to first understand the network and subnetting. The network 192.168.20.24/29 is a Class C network with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.248. This means that the network has a total of 8 addresses, with 6 usable addresses for hosts.
The usable host addresses for this network are:
The router is assigned the first usable host address (192.168.20.25) and the sales server is given the last usable host address (192.168.20.30).
With this information, we can eliminate options B and D since they do not use any of the usable host addresses for this network. Option E uses the correct IP address for the sales server, but it does not include a default gateway.
That leaves us with options A and C. Let's examine each option in more detail:
Option A: IP address: 192.168.20.14 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.248 Default Gateway: 192.168.20.9 This option is not correct because it uses an IP address that is not part of the usable host addresses for this network.
Option C: IP address: 192.168.20.30 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.248 Default Gateway: 192.168.20.25 This option is correct because it uses the last usable host address for the sales server and includes the correct default gateway, which is the IP address of the router.
Therefore, the correct answer is option C: IP address: 192.168.20.30 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.248 Default Gateway: 192.168.20.25.
