Such a stupid statement. No private IP's are engraved in stone, esp a /24.
How many days does it take you to reconfigure the hosts to connect to the
shared resources - which is what I believe would make you say "there is no
way either end can change its range"? It's a /24 and shared resources can
be accessed by running an internal DNS server, for crying out loud!
