Improve IP/Subnet Matching Algorithm
We assign a 16 bit (i.e. /16) aggregate network to our data-centres. We then sub-net into various VLAN’s which can be of varying bit lengths (e.g. /24, /28). At the moment we have to enter 150+ subnets, whereas with the proposed change we would enter in 1 subnet.
Remove the pattern matching of computer IP information against subnet mask as this is not always correct. Either use only the range specified (or use a CIDR algorithm).
