    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.
