By "host address" do you mean a single IP address without a CIDR mask ("x.x.x.x") or an FQDN?

#2 Updated by Danilo Zrenjanin about 2 months ago

A single host address with a CIDR mask. e.g., 10.0.8.1/24.

OK so you literally meant a host address inside a network, and not the network address.

We could do one of two things here:

  • Have input validation reject the input if the address is not the network address for the subnet (harsh)
  • Change the host address the user input into the appropriate network address on save (easier for the user, but the change may surprise them)

I'm leaning toward the latter approach, and note under the field that it should be/will be changed to a network address
