1. key elements in a network

1.1. Nodes

1.1.1. can be a computer, printer, or any other device capable of sending and/or receiving data generated by other nodes on the network.

1.2. Network Backbone

1.2.1. part of computer network that interconnects various pieces of network, providing a path for the exchange of information between different LANs or subnetworks.

1.3. Segments

1.3.1. segment is a small section of a network

1.4. Subnets

1.4.1. subnetwork or subnet, is a logically visible subdivision of an IP network.

2. IP and virtual addresses

2.1. Internet Protocol Address

2.1.1. An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical label assigned to each device (e.g., computer, printer) participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication.

2.1.2. IPv4 Internet Protocol version 4 consists of 32 bits

2.1.3. IPv6 A new Internet addressing system Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is being deployed to fulfill the need for more Internet addresses consists of 128 bits allow for approximately three hundred and forty trillion, trillion unique IP addresses

2.2. Virtual IP address

2.2.1. an IP address that is shared among multiple domain names or multiple servers.

2.2.2. A virtual IP address eliminates a host's dependency upon individual network interfaces.

2.2.3. Incoming packets are sent to the system's VIPA address, but all packets travel through the real network interfaces.
