Just curious if anyone knows of any printable worksheets for wildcard masking? I know that there are a ton out there on the internets for subnetting, but sadly I don't have an issue with subnetting, lol.

Not sure what you are asking ? Is it given a subnet, whats the wildcard mask ?

Subnet 255.255.252.0
Inverse Mask 0.0.3.255

If so, then you just subtract 255 from each octect in the mask.

e.g.

255 - 255 = 0
255 - 255 = 0
255 - 252 = 3
255 - 0 = 255

Cheers

Dont know of anything. The basic principle is the same though (the maths). "255 - the inverse masks gets you to the proper subnet".

In your case, 0.0.0.5

255 - 0 = 255
255 - 0 = 255
255 - 0 = 255
255 - 5 = 250

255.255.255.250 (not a valid subnet) but 0.0.0.7

255 - 0 = 255
255 - 0 = 255
255 - 0 = 255
255 - 7 = 248

255.255.255.248 is a valid subnet.

Wildcards topics are usually bound to "Access Lists" and "OSPF areas" topics. So you better search for keywords relating to that to find some thing useful. For a starter these might help:

www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/confaccesslists.pdf
www.routeralley.com/ra/docs/access_lists.pdf

There is also an online preview book on ACLs
books.google.com/books?id=P3aE0pgSFfcC&a..._summary_r&cad=0

I know you didn't ask for ACLs but thats just the way it is, Wildcards are usually described within.
