  • Explain the differences between public and private TCP/IP networks.
  • Subnetting is a logical measure for traffic management. So – what is subnetting? What does it accomplish and why would a network administrator employ it?

A computer on the Internet is identified by its IP address. In order to avoid address conflicts, IP addresses are publicly registered with the Network Information Centre (NIC). Computers on private TCP/IP LANs however do not need public addresses, since they do not need to be accessed by the public. For this reason, the NIC has reserved certain addresses that will never be registered publicly.


A subnet is an identifiably separate part of an organization's network. Typically, a subnet may represent all the machines at one geographic location, in one building, or on the same local area network (LAN).

Network designers employ subnets as a way to partition networks into logical segments for greater ease of administration
