Just a note.
If I remember right, from a discussion on an italian mailing-list about
networking, the bits in a netmask should be contiguous but it is not
strictly required. So the /24 part means nothing if you have not
contiguous bits in the mask.

Please no flames, this is only a thing to think about: I may be wrong of
course.

Ciao,
Riccardo.
