Hello,

IP Address:
   The Internet Protocol (IP) is the method or protocol by which data is sent from one computer to another on the Internet. Each computer (known as a host) on the Internet has at least one IP address that uniquely identifies it from all other computers on the Internet.

Private IP:

An IP address is considered private if the IP number falls within one of the IP address ranges reserved for private uses by Internet standards groups. These private IP address ranges exist:

    10.0.0.0 through 10.255.255.255
    169.254.0.0 through 169.254.255.255 (APIPA only)
    172.16.0.0 through 172.31.255.255
    192.168.0.0 through 192.168.255.255

Private IP addresses are typically used on local networks including home, school and business LANs including airports and hotels.

Devices with private IP addresses cannot connect directly to the Internet. Likewise, computers outside the local network cannot connect directly to a device with a private IP. Instead, access to such devices must be brokered by a router or similar device that supports Network Address Translation (NAT).

Hai,

Definition: IP (Internet Protocol) is the primary network protocol used on the Internet, developed in the 1970s. On the Internet and many other networks, IP is often used together with the Transport Control Protocol (TCP) and referred to interchangeably as TCP/IP.

IP supports unique addressing for computers on a network. Most networks use the Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) standard that features IP addresses four bytes (32 bits) in length. The newer Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) standard features addresses 16 bytes (128 bits) in length.

A private IP address is a non-Internet facing IP address on an internal network. Private IP addresses are provided by network devices, such as routers, using network address translation (NAT).

Originally it was thought that IPv4's 32-bit IP addressing system -- yielding 4,294,967,296 theoretical IP addresses -- would be adequate for all purposes. However, as the Internet grew it became apparent that something had to fill the gap between IPv4 and a future system (which would turn out to be IPv6) that would take time to develop and implement. Private IP addressing and NAT fill that gap with the private IP range.

Private IP addressing uses addresses from the class C range reserved for NAT (192.168.0.0 192.168.255.255). Private addresses can be assigned by the router using DHCP or be manually set, after which those addresses can communicate with one another through the router.

Thanks
afsal

Private IP addresses can only be guaranteed unique to an internal network, excepting conflicts. If a directly connected computer does not have a static IP address assigned, even assigning a private IP address manually will not enable communication.

What is IP? What is private IP?

IP stands for Internet protocol.
It's represented by numerical code, which is assigned to each device like computer, printer, phone.
IP's are two types. There are Internal IP, External IP
Internal IP means that your system ip address.
If you want to know your system ip address follow these steps:
Start--->run-->Type cmd
Then command prompt will display.
type ipconfig      
then it will display your system ip address
   
External IP address means that your network IP address. If you want to know your Network IP address then visit IP-Details.com here it display  IP address, ISP,location, Longitude, latitude and so on.

A private IP address is any number or address assigned to a device on a private TCP/IP Local Area Network that is accessible only within the Local Area Network. A private IP address is assigned by a member of the network and is generally not accessible by anyone outside that network.
