new IP number subnet mask?

hello all -

when i obtain a new IP number, what is the subnet mask i should use, or does it even matter?

my current add-on IP number has 255.255.255.248 but my second add-on IP number defaulted to a different value using webmin. i don't necessarily trust the defaults in this case.

thank you very much.

You can see the info in my.interserver.net on the vps information page (select the package).

The netmask varies based on how interserver set ups the networking for that ip range. So webmin won't know, its only guessing.

Or ask support for the netmask info in a ticket.

* It probably won't cause a big issue having the wrong network.
