Join Mike Chapple for an in-depth discussion in this video IP addresses, part of CompTIA Security+ (SY0-501) Cert Prep: 2 Technologies and Tools.
- [Instructor] For the internet Protocol…to successfully deliver traffic…between any two systems on a network,…it must have an addressing scheme.…Just like telephones use phone numbers…and postal mail uses street addresses,…the internet needs an addressing scheme.…Because the addresses are used by the internet protocol,…they're known as IP addresses.…In most cases, IP addresses are written in what's known…as the dotted quad notation.…This means that they are four numbers separated by periods.…
Each number may range between zero and 255.…Why 255?…Because each number is represented using eight binary bits.…Those bits can represent…two to the eighth power possible numbers.…Two to the eighth is 256,…but since we start counting at zero,…we can only go up to 255 in our IP address values.…A systems IP address uniquely identifies it on a network.…If the system is directly connected to the internet,…the IP address it uses must not be used…by any other system in the world,…just as your mobile phone number is not used elsewhere…
