IP Address

An IP Address is an identifier for a Computer or device on a TCP/IP network. Networks using the TCP/IP Protocol route messages according to the destination IP address. Within a private network, IP addresses can be assigned AT random as long as each one is unique. However, connecting a private Network to the Internet requires using publicly registered IP addresses (called Internet addresses) to avoid duplicates.
