Okay, I had tried 115 and it had worked.  But, please explain to me, 240 is
11110000 binary, correct?  How in the world can you get a range of 113-126
from that?  I am sure you are right, I just thought I knew how net masks work,
it seems I have absolutely no idea how they work.

Looking over the paper work closely, I see that, indeed, we were only assigned
13 IP addresses (I had asked for 10) so that is not the issue.  When the
installer
come in, I asked him for our range, since it said here block size /28 and I
thought
that referred to our block of ip addresses, apparently not.  He is the one who
gave
me the range.

Regards,

Jim Langston

With a subnet of x.x.x.240 you can use x.x.x.113 - 126.  Get a new ISP if
they told you 112 - 140 because they do not know what they are talking
about.  Try 126 on your AS400.
