Till now you must have seen different types of networks, such as Wide Area Network, Local Area Network, and different other types of network. Private networks are formed when we have a couple of different computers linked via a router with each other. The router usually have a static IP address such as 192.168.l.254 which is accessible within the Private network, while the computers have different IP address which are assigned dynamically.
The IP addresses assigned to the PC or the static IP address of the router cannot be accessed directly from the internet. These private ip addresses are used to communicate within the private network, and we rarely see any kind of interaction for these IP addresses out of the private network. Today we are going to discuss about this kind of private networks, and see if they have more advantages over disadvantage or not.
Advantages of Private IP Address 192.168.l.254 are as follow:
A private network is usually we see when we are in some kind of insititution where there is a private server with them, and a wide host of computers attached together. A private IP address such as 192.168.l.254 is having much security than what we see with the custom IP address assigned to our network end. The IP address will be accessed only if required, while over the internet at times we might get a DDOS attack which will harm our PC, and can even affect the IP getting blocked for next 48 HRs i.e. no internet.
A Private network is usually really small, and ip addresses such as 192.168.l.254 are really easy to detect. Mostly we see devices having their own IP addresses, and the address mentioned above comes with different kind of routers which are really easy to guess. When we have certain problem with the network, either in IP address devolvement or any other problem, it is quite easy to solve.
Now let us discuss about some of the disadvantages linked with Private IP’s:
192.168.l.254 as these IP addresses can only be accessed from the private network, it will result into the IP becoming useless for most of the cases. Say for example if it is a private server with the private address, and if we access the same from the internet, then we cannot access till we have the public IP assigned to the network if it is connected to the main internet network.
If you have a bunch of different private IP address, then they are going to be hell costly when it comes to maintenance. You will always have to look after if something is going wrong with the network, and if it is then you have to solve it on your own which might result into some financial issues. Maintaining different types of server IP addresses such as 192.168.l.254 is not easy.
These are the advantages and disadvantages of a private IP address such as 192.168.l.254. If you have any other issues regarding the same do let us know in the comment section below.
