Using Authorized IP Managers
Defining Authorized Management Stations
For example, a mask of 255.255.255.0 and any value for the Authorized Manager
IP parameter allows a range of 0 through 255 in the 4th octet of the authorized
IP address, which enables a block of up to 254 IP addresses for IP management
access (excluding 0 for the network and 255 for broadcasts). A mask of
255.255.255.252 uses the 4th octet of a given Authorized Manager IP address to
authorize four IP addresses for management station access. The details on
how to use IP masks are provided under "Building IP Masks" on page 10-9.
The IP Mask is a method for recognizing whether a given IP address is
authorized for management access to the switch. This mask serves a different
purpose than IP subnet masks and is applied in a different manner.
