A netmask, or subnet mask, is the part of an IP address that is used to determine if two addresses are on the same subnet by allowing any network enabled device, such as a FortiGate, to separate the network address and the host address. This lets the device determine if the traffic needs to be sent through a gateway to an external network or if it is being sent to host on the local network.
