A CDE Definition
See private IP address.
private IP address
An IP address within three ranges of numbers that are set aside for the computers in local networks. Typically assigned to the machines by a DHCP server, these private addresses are not routed over the Internet. In order to gain access to the Internet, the private addresses are converted to a public IP address that is exposed to the Internet by a network address translation (NAT) service. See 192.168.1.1, CIDR, NAT, DHCP and IP address.
