What is the 'broadcast' under an interface (such as eth0)? The example config shows 192.168.1.0 for broadcast. According to a not-as-straight-forward Google search, 'broadcast' is known as the Broadcast ID.
What is that? I have two external static IP addresses, and I was able to get all the information I needed (including for 'network'), except for 'broadcast' because the support tech. was not sure what "broadcast ID" is or was (and neither am I). What am I supposed to set it as? Is it a required line?
EDIT: Massive fail in another thread.
The broadcast is known, but the 'network' isn't. I am wanting to know what 'network' is, and what the value of it should be.
