I'm using KPF 2.1.5, specifying the remote endpoint for a rule. I've read wikipedia's page on subnetworks. The KPF rule window asks for a network address and a network mask. My understanding is that a network address 123.234.321.432 and network mask 255.255.255.0 specifies a network address 123.234.321, which includes all devices with IP addresses 123.234.321.0 to 123.234.321.255. Is this correct? I wouldn't normally seek a sanity check on something that seems quite obvious, except that it seems like a strange way to specify the address range (in 2 separate pieces) when you could just as easily say 123.234.321.xxx. Thanks.
