ip addressing
IP Addressing
  • An IP address is 32-bit long.
    • It is usually written as four decimal numbers separated by
    • dots (periods) (dotted decimal notation)
    • In hex, each of the four hexadecimal numbers is  called an
    • octet.
    • Example: or 89 CF C0 03
    • An IP address contains a network part and a host part.
    • The number of address bits used to identify the network, and
    • the number to identify the host, vary according to the class of
    • the address.
    • Routers or gateways have one or more addresses (depending on the no. of links they have) The three main
    • address classes are class A, class B, and class C.
    • By examining the first few bits of an address, IP software can
    • quickly determine the address class, and therefore its structure.
ip addressing1


For Class A: Have a first dotted decimal number in the range 1-126

For Class B: Have a first dotted decimal number in the range 128-191

For Class C: Have a first dotted decimal number in the range 192-223

IP Addressing

IP Addressing
  • There are five forms of IP addresses:Class A :126 networks, each can have up to (16M-2) nodes.( - B: (16K-2) networks, each can have up to (64K-2) nodes( - C: (2M-2) networks, each can have up to 254 nodes.( - D: a multicast address.( - E: reserved for future use.( -
ip address
IP address

For example:The address (binary) - 10000000 00000111 00001111 00000001has the DECIMAL DOT NOTATION: belongs to Class B addresses.Its Network-id is: 128.7Its Host-id is: 15.1

class a
Class A
  • If the first bit of an IP address is 0, it is the address of a class A network.
  • The first bit of a class A address identifies the address class.
  • The next seven bits identify the network, and
  • the last 24 bits identify the host.  
  • There are fewer than 128 class A network numbers, but each class A network can have millions of hosts.

|_| first one bit is used to determine the class to which an address belongs to for Class A address.

  • |_______| 7 bits are used for Network address.Therefore, the number of class A networks can be 2 7 = 128. Number 0 is  not used, and number 127 is used for testing loopback for each host. There are 126 potential Class A network numbers, which have a first dotted decimal number in the range 1 to 126.
  • |________________________| 24 bits are used for host address. Therefore, each Class A network can have 2 24 = 16,777,216 hosts.

  • Class A:Few networks, each with many hosts.
  • Class B: Medium number of networks, each with a medium number of hosts
  • Class C: Many networks, each with a few hosts.
loopback address
Loopback Address
  • IP defines a loopback address used to test network applications.
  • Programmers often use loopback testing for preliminary debugging after a network application has been created.
  • To perform a loopback test, a programmer must have two application programs that are intended to communicate across a network.
  • Each application includes the code needed to interact with TCP/IP protocol software.
  • Instead of executing each program on a separate computer, the programmer runs both programs on a single computer and instructs them to use a loopback IP address when communicating.
loopback address1
Loopback Address
  • When one application sends data to another, data travels down the protocol stack to the IP software and then IP software forwards it up through the protocol stack to the second program.
  • Thus programmer can test the program logic quickly without using two computers and without sending packets across the network.
  • During loopback testing, packets do not leave a computer and the Ip sofware forwards the packets from one application to another application.
  • The loopback address never appears in a packet travelling across a network.
limited broadcast address
Limited Broadcast Address
  • Refers to a broadcast on a local physical network.
  • Informally, the broadcast is limited to a “single wire”.
  • Limited broadcast is used during startup by a computer that does not yet know the network number.
  • IP reserves the address consisting of all 1 bits to refer to limited broadcast.
  • IP will broadcast any packet sent to the all-ones address across the local network.
use of different class addresses
Use of different Class addresses
  • In some environment, it may be best to use addresses all from one class.
  • For example, a corporate internet that consists of a large number of departmental LANs may need to use Class C addresses exclusively.
  • However, the format of the addresses allow us to mix all three classes of the addresses on the same internet. Example: Internet.
  • We will prefer a mixture of classes for an internet consisting of a few large networks, many small networks, plus some medium-sized networks.
address depletion
Address Depletion
  • The TCP/IP designers did not think about the enormous scale of
  • today's network.
  • When TCP/IP was being designed, networking was limited to
  • large organizations that could afford substantial computer
  • systems.
  • The idea of a powerful UNIX system on every desktop, or X-
  • terminal or a PC with X-Ware (PC software to emulate X-
  • terminal) did not exist.  
  • At That time, a 32-bit address seemed so large that it was
  • divided into classes to reduce the processing load on routers.
address depletion1
Address Depletion
  • For example, assigning a large network a single class B address,
  • instead of few class C  addresses, reduces the load on the router,
  • because the router only needs to keep one route for that entire
  • organization.
  • However, the organization that was given the class B address
  • probably does not have 64,000 computers, so most of the host
  • addresses available to the organization will never be assigned.
  • The current design, which favors routers over growth, is under
  • critical strain from the rapid growth of the Internet. At the present
  • rate of growth, all class B addresses could be exhausted soon!.
  • To prevent this, blocks of class C addresses are being assigned to
  • organizations, but each class C address requires its own entry
  • within the routing table.
  • This solution could cause the routing table to grow so rapidly that
  • the routers will soon be overwhelmed.
address depletion2
Address Depletion
  • These problems are being addressed by the ROAD (Routing and Addressing) working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). They are looking for a scheme that:
    • It will improve the problem of address depletion,
    • perhaps by moving to a larger address, 160-bit address!
    • Classless addresses.
    • Implementation of new routers, without requiring
    • changes to the end-systems (the hosts).
  • We don't know what technique will be adopted by the IETF to overcome the problems of address depletion. However, according to them, whatever happens, the changes should not have any near-term effect on your hosts, and IP addressing will be same at least for some time.
why subnetting
Why subnetting?
  • Preservation of address space
  • Control network traffic, avoid collisions
  • Reduce the routing complexity
  • Improve network performance
  • Security

Subnetting is a method for getting the most out of the limited 32-bit IP addressing space. With any address class, subnetting provides a mean of allocating a part of the host address space to network addresses, which will let you have more networks. The part of the host address space allocated to new network addresses is known as the subnet number.

The InterNIC assigned the University of Windsor one class B Network address, which is with network number part 137.207. The Host number part is left to be assigned by the local management - The Computing Services)

  • In class B IP address, the 2 right-hand bytes assigned for the host
  • number, can be subdivided into 254 subnetworks and 254 hosts to
  • each subnetwork number.
  • Which bits in the host address bytes will be applied to subnet
  • addresses and which to host addresses is determined by a subnet
  • mask, or netmask.(/etc/netmasks)
  • The netmask can be applied to an IP address using the bitwise
  • logical AND operator.
  • If a netmask (or FF.FF.FF.00) is applied to the
  • address (or 89 CF C0 03), the result is a network
  • number
  • i.e.: &
  • =
  • or,    89 CF C0 03 & FF FF FF 00
  • = 89 CF C0 00.

In binary form, the operation is:

10001001 11001111 11000000 00000011 (IP address )AND11111111 11111111 11111111 00000000 (netmask)


10001001 11001111 11000000 00000000 (masked number)

Now the system (router or server) will look for a network number of instead of a network number of 137.207., then the router (or the server) will locate the host (workstation) from its table, and adds the corresponding machine number to get  To increase the host number from 254, a different mask number could be used for less subnetworks and more hosts.

default subnet masks
Default subnet masks:
  • Class A - - 11111111.00000000.00000000.00000000
  • Class B - - 11111111.11111111.00000000.00000000
  • Class C - - 11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000
ip subnetting
IP Subnetting
  • Subnetting is a technique used to allow a single IP network address to span multiple physical networks.IP hosts should support subnetting.
  • Subnetting is done by using some of the bits of the host-id part of the IP address as a physical network identifier.
  • The subnet mask is used to determine the bits of the network identifier.
  • All hosts on the same network should have the same subnet mask.
ip the next generation ipng ipv6
IP - The Next Generation (IPng - IPv6)
  • The growing number of INTERNET hosts causes a shortage in IP addresses and will eventually consume the entire address space.
  • The theoretical address space size (2^32 nodes) is largely wasteddue to assignment inefficiencies.
  • Dividing the address space into classes (A, B and C) had its owncontribution to the inefficiency of addresses assignment.
  • Changing the IP addressing scheme is a matter concerning all INTERNET users and is an opportunity for providing additionalfunctionality to the IP.
  • The new version of IP is often referred to as IPng:"INTERNET Protocol: The Next Generation".Most INTERNET users agreed IPng should have a hierarchicaladdress structure. This new address structure should be largeenough to meet the needs of the INTERNET community for a very long time.
ip the next generation ipng ipv61
IP - The Next Generation (IPng - IPv6)
  • There were several proposals for IPng. The most likely to become a standard were: "Common Architecture for the INTERNET" (CATNIP) "Simple INTERNET Protocol Plus" (SIPP), and "The TCP/UDP Over CLNP-Addressed Networks (TUBA) proposals.
  • The guidelines for choosing one proposals over the others were:
  • Current address assignment policies should not be changed.
  • There is no need to reclaim assigned network numbers
  • There is no need to renumber most of the INTERNETEventually the "Simple INTERNET Protocol Plus (SIPP) Spec.(128 bit ver)" was adopted as the basis for IPng.IPng was assigned the name IPv6.
ipng ipv6 addressing
IPng - IPv6 addressing
  • IPng offers a larger address space for the INTERNET users.
  • The IP address size will be increased from 32 bits to 128 bits.
  • This change will allow a much bigger number of nodes than is available today, with more levels of addressing hierarchy, and simpler auto-configuration of addresses.
  • An address size of 128 bits is large enough to support a huge number of nodes even with the inefficiency of address assignment.
ipv6 addressing ip header
IPv6 addressing: IP header
  • The IP header will be changed.
  • Some fields will be removed in order to keep the overhead low (in spite of increasing the number of address bits).
  • Thus, even though the IPv6 addresses arefour times longer than the IPv4 addresses, the IPv6 header is only twice the size of the IPv4 header.
  • A new function in IPv6 is source routing, which together with Cluster addresses will allow nodes to control their routing in a more precise way.
upgrading ipv4 to ipng ipv6
Upgrading IPv4 to IPng - IPv6
  • The transition from IPv4 to IPv6 will be simple and flexible.
  • The upgrade will be Incremental: existing IPv4 hosts and routers may be upgraded to IPv6 and new hosts and routers can be installed independently.
  • When existing IPv4 hosts or routers are upgraded, they can continue to use their current address.
  • The start-up costs are low and little work is needed to upgrade existing systems to IPv6.
