SSelinger posted this question in the TechRepublic forums with a value of 225 TechPoints: “I need a guide on how to supernet. The MS TCP/IP book does not provide this. Points for fastest most knowledgeable answer.”

At the time of this writing, SSelinger hadn’t rated any of the answers. However, here’s what TechRepublic member Ivachon had to say: “Microsoft's TCP/IP training kit includes a chapter on supernetting (Chapter 5). Supernetting demands a firm grasp on subnetting, which is thoroughly covered in this kit.” The book SSelinger refers to, “Internetworking with TCP/IP on Microsoft Windows NT 4.0,” lists for $69.95 (hardcover) at Fatbrain.com.

TechRepublic member HasseMCSE/BrainBench posted several “links to supernetting for faster access that’s cheaper than buying a book!”
