private addresses exam question

Hi all

on the ccent exam, if I was asked what were 2 private ips out of

10.217.1.1

172.16.1.1

127.2.2.2

225.4.4.4

which ones would be private, i would say a and b, but on one of the practice tests, it says the 127.x.x.x is private, surely this is incorrect ?

RFC1918 states that the private addressing ranges are

10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255 (10/8 prefix)

172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 (172.16/12 prefix)

192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 (192.168/16 prefix)

see RFC for full details

http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1918.txt?number=1918

127.x.x.x is a special range of addressing designed for loopback addressing. It's not routable so in a way it could be described as a private address but if you had to choose 2 from the above it would be a & b as you say. See link for more details

Good luck with your exam tomorrow.

If you were asked a question on any Cisco exam, it is a violation of the NDA to repeat that question to anyone, including this forum.

Well, he said:

"Hi all on the ccent exam, if I was asked..."

Please notice the if word

"but on one of the practice tests, it says.."

Please notice the practice test words

Re: private addresses exam question

Well said by all who saw the if and other details, original point still stands, adding an "if" may not change the facts IF the original poster added the if not to look guilty. If the person is not guilty, let my point stand as a warning to others.
