I still don't have a really clear understanding of subnet masks, and I want to understand it better, but right now I urgently need an answer to just one question:
If my computer's subnet mask is 255.255.0.0, can I connect directly to a device with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0?
For instance, if I had my PC set up with an IP address of 192.168.1.100, with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0, and a gateway of 192.168.1.1, would I be able to directly connect to a device (e.g. Raspberry Pi) with an IP address of 192.168.1.150, with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, and a gateway of 192.168.1.1?
Please let me know.
