Note:
The following CIDR will be rejected by Tencent Cloud, 10.0.0.0/8, 172.16.0.0/12, 192.168.0.0/16 and 100.64.0.0/10, due to the restriction of Tencent Cloud Network.

You can divide the CIDR into 2 subnets of them and broadcast:

10.0.0.0/8 = 10.0.0.0/9 + 10.128.0.0/9;

172.16.0.0/12 = 172.16.0.0/13 + 172.24.0.0/13;

192.168.0.0/16 = 192.168.0.0/17 + 192.168.128.0/17;

100.64.0.0/10 = 100.64.0.0/11 + 100.96.0.0/11。
