Chapter 12. TCP/IP Network Administration > Working with IP Addresses

Working with IP Addresses

As was discussed in Chapter 5, the addressing scheme used by the TCP/IP protocol stack is provided by the IP protocol. As you already know (if you read Chapter 5), the IP addressing scheme has been divided into three classes: A, B, and C. Each of these classes has a default subnet mask.

For devices to communicate on the network, they must be configured with a valid IP address and subnet mask. One way to configure a computer or network printer with an IP address and subnet mask is to manually configure the device. We will look at configuring a PC with an IP address and subnet mask in a moment.
