    Answer these questions.

    1. What's the difference between subnetting and VLSM?
    2. How do we provide for more users with VLSM?
    3. How do we plan the address scheme of a network using VLSM?

    Let's say that you only have 25 hosts. You could use /27 mask now, but with expansions plans in mind, you would need to double the number of required hosts, so you'll have to use /26, which will give you 62 hosts per subnet.

    Now only starting the Subnetting and VLSM so i hope that i would answer to your questions?

    1. Probably how to define and find the valid host range used in Class A,B,C Networks. - Subnetting
    VLSM (Variable length subnet mask) is to find the Subnet mask, Network address, First address and last address.

    It's a bit of a misnomer. Subnetting is taking a large network and creating multiple smaller networks. VLSM however specifies that those subnetworks can be of varying side. Allowing for more networks in a given space.

    We provide more users by making the network bigger

    We make our networks larger to meet demands, if we have no 'unallocated space' we can move our subnetworks around to make space.
