Subnet Mask

Posted by 11 August, 2019 Comments Off on Subnet Mask

A subnet mask is used to detect the IP address that is reserved for your network and the one available for use by the host. The subnet mask offers you all the information that you need to calculate the network and host portions of the address with great ease. With the subnet mask you can calculate whether the IP addresses are in a similar subnet.

The subnets are necessary for the IP network communications to carry on. The network devices use the IP addresses and a defined subnet mask to determine if the host is on a remote subnet or local subnet.

It makes it easy to identify the number of hosts capable of being included on the same subnet.

Passwords are important codes that help to prevent unauthorized access to data and provide accounts management interface. Changing and resetting of passwords is important especially when there is a possibility of the older password has been figured out by an unauthorized person which leads to hacking of the protected account or data. Resetting a password needs one to first log-in, enter the current password followed by the new password and a confirmation of the same. When changing a password, one should generate one that is easy to remember but random enough such that it is not easy to guess. This is best gained by mixing lowercase, uppercase, special characters and numbers.

Passwords should be changed at least once in every 6 months.
