In the second of these excellent videos from Yamaha Commercial Audio, Patrick Killianey looks at IP addresses which have special status. This is much easier going than the previous video and comes in just under five minutes.
If you watchesd the first video then now you know why your subnet mask on your home network is always 255.255.255.0, So why do your home network IP addresses always start 192.168.0? Watch the video and you'll find out.
To make the video more accessible I've listed times for the main points.
- 0.25 - Why do we have reserved IP ranges?
- 1.19 - Table of common reserved IP ranges Including default Dante primary and Secondary Ranges
- 2.42 - Reserved IP addresses (IP addresses to avoid)
