    In a nutshell, what are Superscopes for? I've never had to implement one.

  2. Multi-netting,...just like I said in the last post.

    A multi-net is two or more IP segment running over the same physical wires
    that lets all the segments collectively act as a single segment. In a
    multi-net it does not matter what subnet a host "lands" on,...they can be on
    one subnet once and the a different one the next time it boots up.

    These things are *rare*, horribly confusing, very inefficient, and are
    pretty much made obsolete by the invention of VLAN technology. In VLANs you
    still have multiple segments on the same wires but they are at least
    logically separated by the technology VLANs operate by. VLANs are still
    inefficient concering the physical wire usage, but in every other way behave
    as a physical segment.

    The views expressed are my own (as annoying as they are), and not those of
    my employer or anyone else associated with me.
