I read an article at this Link and got very confuse, If you take a look at the link you can see thoes two lines:
This is the first part of the article that got me confused:
1) It tells us which network the device is part of (Network ID).
2) It identifies that unique device within the network (Node ID).
If i am understanding correct the Node ID = Host ID. But the word node make me think that mabye the Node ID refers to the Subnet ID, Whereas the Host ID refers to the individual host within the subnet.
This is the second part of the article that got me confused:
If you can take a look at the end of the article there is a table:
I didn't understand the difference between the Host bits and the Node bits.
If some one can please take an IP and "break" it into (Network ID, Subnet ID, Node ID, Host ID), Thank you all and have a nice day.
