• An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each
device participating in a computer network that uses the Internet protocol for
• Ip address must be unique in a network.
• Ip address is read with its Subnet mask.
• 32 bits( 0 or 1) divided into 4 octets.
• Ip address has two portions – network and host.
• Each octet has a decimal value ranging from 0 to 255, except for the first octet
which is 1 to 255.
• The first octet cannot be 127 , this is reserved for loopback and also to check if
protocol stack is correctly configured.
• All 0’s define network address.
• All 1’s define broadcast address.
• The ip address 255.255.255.255 defines a general broadcast.
• Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) is a method for allocating IP
addresses and routing Internet Protocol packets. The Internet Engineering
Task Force introduced CIDR in 1993 to replace the previous addressing
architecture of classful networkdesign in the Internet.Its goal was to slow
the rapid exhaustion of IPv4 address.
• CIDR values tells about the ON bits
for example:255.224.0.0/11 -> 11 bits are on
255.255.192.0/18 -> 18 bits are on
Maximum range is /30 because 31 & 32 are reserved for hosts.
Telnet: It is a service through which we can access one pc from another pc in
FTP: A method of transferring one or more file from one system to another
system over a network.
TFTP: It is stack version of FTP. TFTP has no browsing ability. It can send and
NFS: It is a service through which we can transfer data and files from linux to
linux or linux to window.
SMTP: Simple mail transport protocol, through this mail can be sent.
DNS:It translate name to IP or Ip to names.
DHCP: It is used to give IP to client automatically.

• Example:• Ip route 126.96.36.199 255.0.0.0 10.0.0.2
• Default routes define a router as the default
router. When there is no entry for the destination
nettwork in the routing table, the router will
forward the packet to its default router.Default
