When hear the word IP-ADDRESS,Most of us questioning like;what is the need of IP?why we using a set of numbers?and some of them are worried about the IP-ADDRESS concept,and this post will shoot out your fear about IP-ADDRESSING AND SUB-NETTING for sure.Let us see what is an IP-address
What is IP-ADDRESS?
IP-ADDRESS is nothing but the set of numbers separated by dots which is used for identifying the networking element in the Network,let us take our personal computer or our laptop having the individual IP-ADDRESS
And from the above image there are two dialog-box appear one is for MAC-OS and other one is for WINDOWS-OS,To be honest most of the people were just copy and paste the information.so most of them don’t know about IP-ADDRESS configuration,This is the place where we need to configure the IP-ADDRESS.Let us see detail view about IP
Am Providing you a Handwritten sheets for your understanding purpose,Let us see the operation of IP-V4
HOW TO FIND THE NETWORK-ID,BROADCAST-ID,VALID START AND END POINT?
From the above the ideal number of host should be 65,534 but the ideal number of host should not be more than 500,because anything more than 500 will leads to high traffic in broadcast then the network should be very inefficient.
To overcome this we Go for SUB-NETTING
WHAT IS SUB-NETTING?
Sub-netting is nothing but a,Breaking of larger network into smaller segments.we learn sub-netting in our upcoming post,I give you a heads about Sub-netting,why we go for Sub-netting?For-example we have 1500 IP-ADDRESS but we need 400 so in that case we need SUB-NETTING.And another example let we taking a hotel in that hotel there are 500 rooms available and it is easy to maintain that much amount of rooms but in case the hotel having 1800 rooms its really an tedious process for maintaining the hotel so as the same thing is happen for IP-ADDRESS also so how to overcome this let us see in our next post.
