Interop long ago ceased being a interop shootout and became a 8x11 color glossy
trade show. I think the last time any actual *testing* happened at Interop, the
guys hooking up the network drops were wearing t-shirts that said "Yes, the
subnet mask really *is* 255.255.252.0", and anybody who whined that their gear
only supported octet-boundary subnets was told "And next year, it will be
255.255.250.0".

:)

Anybody got production gear that *still* doesn't do non-octet-boundary subnets?
