Is netmask important?
- Yes, netmask is as important as IP address.
- Think of it as a zip code that goes with a street address.
- For most networks, 255.255.255.0 is the correct netmask.
- For IP addresses that start with 169.254.X.X then 255.255.0.0 is the correct netmask.
- If there is a network mask mismatch between your PC and the1500-OEM/3000-OEM Panel Plus will report this problem when you try to Connect to your SLA hardware.
