Guidelines On IP Version 4

O Start exploring IPv4, it’s easiest to start exploring the current network configuration for your computer. click reference To do this, first open the Properties dialog box for the network card, as discussed in Part 2 of this series, highlight the selection of IP version 4, and click the Properties button. Then, you will see a standard dialog box. From here you see two simple parameters for the setup. You can configure your network card to either of these:

“Automatically obtain an IP address” which is the default and uses the services of a DHCP server somewhere on the network

“Use the IP address below” where an administrator configures a static IP address by typing specific IP parameters

What parameters do they need? Administrators selecting a static address chooses four key configuration criteria typically, as indicated by the entry boxes accessible here. These are the four subjects that we will be debating:

An Password to IP

A mask on the subnet

A normal passageway

A default (and often secondary) email address for the domain name network (DNS)

Here’s something to bear in mind while manually configuring Network settings: an IP address and a subnet mask are completely important while setting up TCP / Internet. The other two parameters, which are necessary for communication on broader networks such as the Telephone, are typically installed. In the parts that follow, each receives individual consideration.

The adress to the IP

As you know, computers use numbers to talk to each other, and the IP address is simply a number that identifies your computer as a unique entity on the network, much as a telephone number does for phones. And, just like part of the phone number (for example, the area code) identifies which network the phone is living on, so does the IP address: it identifies what network your computer is living on.
