Hi all,

This my scenario:

We have two networks in our lan: and Actually the networks are separated.
The network contains some hosts that ip can not be changed.

The goal:

We want redesign the network and communicate with both networks without routers.

I thougnt about changing the netmask for in (1022 hosts) and change IP's in the network in

Is that correct?
have you other suggestions?

changing the subnet masks does nothing for your situation.

you can not supernet those ip ranges.

for example you have
which results in a range of ips -

How is that going to help you at all?
