pix 501 and number of devices supported

HI every body!

I have few questions on pix 501

I quote from the side below:

"The PIX 501 is the smallest model from Cisco, so we'll assume that your network isn't too large. In this example, we're only going to NAT your one public IP. Theoretically, you can NAT 254, although you're limited to 10 devices unless you buy an upgrade license"

1)Does it mean the without upgate license, pix 501 can perform nat for upto 10 devices?

------------------------------------------

"One note on the DHCP server configuration above is that you may have to obtain DNS numbers from your provider. If you don't have those numbers readily available or aren't sure what to do, you can use 4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2. The only problem is that these numbers might not quickly resolve your Web pages as your own ISP, so you should consider using numbers your ISP provides."

2) what these ip addresses are 4.2.2.1, 4.2.2.1?

------------------------------------------

thanks a lot!
