nat tcp ip address

By mbrunton ·
what is the correct NAT tcp ip address. i have a network about 100 pcs. i am going to use NAT to access the internet. I want to assign address to the PC's. What address to I give them. I see that some people use 192.168.0__ or 192.168.1__. What is the correct one. Is there a difference?

Some routers default to 192.168.0.1 and others default to 192.168.1.1 ... there's no real difference between them. Most people just accept the default from the router.

You can give either address set to the computer... just be consistent (computer #1=192.168.1.x / 255.255.255.0 ; computer#2 last digit should increment by 1, subnetmask stays the same ; etc).

If you manually assign addresses to the computer, you need to make sure that they are in the same network as the router's default (if you decide to use one). You will also need to turn off DHCP services from the router.

If you use DHCP from a server, internal computer, then make sure that you have a scope that excludes the router and your dhcp server... and keep those static ip addresses separate.

There isn't any difference, but I always recommend not using 192.168.0.X or 192.168.1.X. Hackers know that these are heavily used and they send packets that look like they are from these networks to see if that is what your internal network looks like. Use a higher number for the third octect (it can be anything from 1-254). Use something like 192.168.125.X

It will make it harder for hackers to figure out your internal network.

good luck

There's not real comparisons. You can assign IP address to each PCs on this 192.168.x.y subnet. But be consistent.
For my home network, I'm using NAT for 3 PCs and directly via high speed cable ISP. I'm using DHCP instead of self assign the Workstation. That is because I have laptop coming from my office network which is also DHCP and reconfiguring these network properties is a pain on a long time basis.

I'm having issue with NAT vs win95 and win2k. Some port and protocols cannot be activated on NAT. So be sure to check those. You may want to go to Proxy Server.
