Ok , How about going with this range 172.16.0.0 with mask /252. Is it will work for me? Also can I do this with one interface ?

Do I need additional configuration to let this range see each other and going to internet?

Hello Ashraf,

Since you need 300 IP addresses. As an example, you can take 172.16.0.0/23.
In total, you will have 510 IP addresses.  Please see the below screenshot for details.

Dear Ashraf,

 

You can use the range with a subnet mask.  Also, have the FGT interface configured with a bigger mask rather than /24 as it will contain only around 250 IP addresses.

Dear Ashraf,

 

Yes 172.16.0.0 will work, subnet will be 255.255.0.0 . I didn't get what do you mean /252. Yes You can do with one interface only.
