Question: Central University: A network manager for a university with 13,000 students, 10 separate colleges, (e.g. business, arts, etc.), 3 are large with 300 faculty & staff, 2000 students, and 3 bldgs). 7 are small (200 faculty & staff members in various admin functions in 10 bldgs. 4 residence halls house 2000 students. University has 127.210.xxx.xxx address How would you assign the IP addresses to the various subnets? How would you control the process by which IP addresses are assigned to individual computers? You will have to make some assumptions, so be sure to state your assumptions. I believe there are 30 buildings total.
Answer: Assign all of the computers that need to have access from outside to addresses wthin the 127.210.xxx.xxx range. Set up a new private network (say in the 162.16.xxx.xxx range) for those not requiring access from outside.
note that I have changed the ip address that the University refereced in this question is using.
