I stand corrected. :) I was sure that 192.168.0.0 was like 10.0.0.0, but
it's not. 10.0.0.0 is one big whopping private class A network, while
192.168.x.0 is 255 (or so) class C networks. I remembered that there are
private A, B, and C numbers, but forgot B, and remembered C in its place.
Class A netmask: 255.0.0.0
Class B netmask: 255.255.0.0
Class C netmask: 255.255.255.0
