Private IP Address Ranges
Address ranges below are reserved by IANA for private intranets, and not routable to the Internet.
For additional information, see RFC 1918.
10.0.0.0 ~ 10.255.255.255 (10.0.0.0/8 prefix)
172.16.0.0 ~ 172.31.255.255 (172.16.0.0/12 prefix)
192.168.0.0 ~ 192.168.255.255 (192.168.0.0/16 prefix)
Reserved and special use addresses:
0.0.0.0/8 - Current network (only valid as source address) RFC 1700
127.0.0.0 is reserved for loopback and IPC on the localhost.
127.0.0.1 ~ 127.255.255.254 (127.0.0.0/8) - loopback IP addresses (refers to self) RFC 5735
192.0.0.0/24 - reserved (IANA) RFC 5735

255.255.255.255 is the limited broadcast address (limited to all other nodes on the LAN) RFC 919
255 in any part of the IP is reserved for broadcast addressing
0.0.0.0 in routing context means the default route (to "the rest of" the internet) RFC 1700
0.0.0.0 in the context of firewalls means "all addresses of the local machine" RFC 1700
Computers connected to a network are assigned a unique number known as Internet Protocol (IP) Address.
IP (version 4) addresses consist of four numbers in the range 0-255 separated by periods (i.e. 127.0.0.1).
A computer may have either a permanent (static) IP address, or one that is dynamically assigned/leased to it.
Most IP addresses can be mapped to host/domain names (i.e. www.speedguide.net).
Resolution between domain names and IP addresses is handled by Domain Name Servers (DNS).
