Hello folks ,
I am new bee to networking kindly help me out in this regards
IP is a 32 bit address with four octates. It is like an address of your computer, or a Network Device.
example 192.168.1.1 is having four octates in it with dot separation.
To know it more please go to the link as described by Mr. Leo Laohoo.
You can also go through RFC 3330 and RFC 1700
In addition to the IPv4 IP Addresses explained here, there are also IPv6 IP Addresses which are somewhat different. These IPv6 addresses are 128 bits (compared to 32), with eight groups of four hexadecimal digits. They're not limited to just numbers! These are broken up by colons and look like this: 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334. Additionally, IPv6 uses a special notation to shorten the length of addresses when applicable.
IPv6 addresses came into use only recently in the grand scheme of things as a means of offering more addresses when the IPv4 ones ran out so while you may not see a ton of them, it's important to know what they are.
