what would be the impact of having 2 different set of static addresses on my internal network as far as accessing files are concerned?? for example all my PCs and my win2k server are on the 10.10.1.x network and my Mac clients are on the 10.10.2.x network??

any input is greatly appreciated..

first thing is, you will probably lose connectivity between your mac and
pc's because using those IP's will essentiall place them on seperate
networks. But you can solve this using a subnet mask, which I will be
the first to admit I am terrible at.

Maybe something like: 255.255.254.0

thanks unflux.. i had a feeling that would be the case.. i think for guaranteed smooth sailing, i will just reconfigure those Macs and put them on the same IP addresses range of the PCs.. thanks again for the input.. I appreciate it very much.

subnet mask of 255.255.240.0 would give you address ranges of
10.10.0.x/24, 10.10.1.x/24, 10.10.2.x/24 ..... 10.10.14.x/24
a subnet mask of 255.255.252.0 would give you address ranges of
10.10.0.x/24, 10.10.1.x/24, 10.10.2.x/24

Gateway=10.10.0.x or 10.10.1.x x=>1, but not 0 or 255 ;) 0 is reserved for the the network and 255 is reserved for the broadcast.

I'm pretty sure that is what it would be for those two different subnet masks, other than that you would have to make some static routes on your firewall so both networks could see each other. But for using network nieghbor hood or something similar it would just be easier if they were in the same IP address range and unless you have more than 253 network devices all you really need is a /24 (255.255.255.0) subnet mask anyways, with a gateway of 10.10.1.1 and IP address range would be 10.10.1.2 - 10.10.1.254 = 252 network devices

Enjoy :D

Jealous -- I still need to take those (sometimes I wonder what's the point if I already know it anyway) Seems like a waste of money for a piece of paper --although it does look good on a resume. Have to admit though, I'd have to seriously think about what ModernDestroyer posted *grins
