whether it can communication which S series switches as a gateway, downlink the host subnet mask than its subnet mask longer(larger)

S series switches (except S1700) as a gateway, the host of downlink subnet mask than its subnet mask loger(larger), the situation of communication between the host as follows:
1) HostS are located on the same network segment of the same VLAN, can communicate normally;
2) Hosts are located on the same network segment with different VLANs, it can be communication with each other by configure the ARP proxy inside VLAN .
3) Hosts belong to different network segments with the sanme VLAN, it can be communication between hosts by configure VLANIF
4) Hosts belong to different network segments and different VLANs, it can be communication between hosts by configure VLAN aggregation
