/32 doesn’t do me a bit of good.

So I’m rebuilding my server at work to use a standard PXE boot, rather than the clunky boot method that DRBL provides (which, without documentation-diving, requires me to make changes to the server, essentially). I learned something, uh, vital today. I need to check netmasks more closely.

Wonder what happens when you try to set up NAT on an interface (or set of interfaces…) that your idiotic self set as netmask 255.255.255.255? In other words, a /32?

Yeah, it, uh, refuses to connect to anything, even *the same device that gave it the IP address in the first place*.

Go self.
