A bit is one digit, either a 1 or a 0.
A byte is 7 or 8 bits, depending on whether parity is used.
An octet, made up of 8 bits, is just an ordinary 8-bit binary number. A section of an ip address
uniquely identifies each network. This is the designation used in routing to send packets to a remote network—for example, 10.0.0.0, 172.16.0.0, and 192.168.10.0
The broadcast address is used by applications and hosts to send information to all hosts on a network.
Broadcast address which designates
all networks and all hosts
Boradcast address which specifies all subnets and hosts
on network 172.16.0.0
Broadcast address for all subnets and hosts on
What is the network address of 172.16.30.56
assigned to, and uniquely identifies, each machine on a network. This part of the address must be unique because it identifies a particular machine—an individual—as opposed to a network, which is a group
What is the host address of 172.16.30.56?
Which octets are set aside for network and host addresses in a class A network?
Which octets are set aside for network and host addresses in a class B network?
Which octets are set aside for network and host addresses in a class C network?
Automatic Private IP Addressing. With APIPA, clients can automatically self-configure an IP address and subnet mask
IP Range for APIPA
169.254.0.1 through 169.254.255.254
Subnet mask for APIPA
Layer 2 broadcasts
Hardware broadcasts. These are sent to all nodes on a LAN. AKA hardware broadcasts. Don't go beyond the router. All 1s, or in hex, Fs
Layer 3 broadcasts
Network broadcasts. These are sent to all nodes on the network. Example: ARP (Address Resolution Protocol)
A unicast address is assigned to a single interface, and this term is used both in IPv4 and
IPv6 to describe your host interface IP address
172.16.255.255 is an example of what type of address
Layer 3 Broadcast
255.255.255 is an example of what type of address? What is the target of the address?
Layer 3 Broadcast, all networks/all hosts
How many addresses will IPv6 provide?
3.4 x 10^38
How many bits is IPv6?
Equals ::. This is the equivalent of IPv4’s 0.0.0.0 and is typically the
source address of a host when you’re using stateful configuration (DHCP).
Equals ::1. The equivalent of 127.0.0.1 in IPv4.
This is how an IPv4 address would be written in a mixed IPv6/
IPv4 network environment.

The unique local unicast range in ipv6
