I have a scenario where I have 4 different departments networked together in a business. These departments each have an IP address of 192.168.0.0/24, 192.168.2.0/24, 192.168.4.0/24, and 192.168.6.0/24 with 4, 6, 8, and 7 workstations respectively. I also need to have a networked printer for each department. What could the IP addresses of these printers be? The workstations are: 192.168.0.11, 192.168.0.12, 192.168.0.13, 192.168.0.14 for the first department, and so on for the remaining 3 departments. With this scenario, could the printers be set up with the IP addresses of: Department 1- 192.168.0.2, Department 2 - 192.168.2.2, Department 3 - 192.168.4.2, and Department 4 - 192.168.6.2? I hope this makes sense and someone can help me out with some feedback -- it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Homework, huh?

Yes, those printer addresses would be fine. In your /24 network, you have the address range 192.168.x.y, where x defines the network and y the hosts, which can be from 1 to 254 (0 cannot be used for a host and 255 is the broadcast address). And of course each address can only be used once on the network, so x.2 is fine for each printer.
