TCP/IP Configuration (part 5) This lesson covers Class C, D & E IP addresses and examines where and how they are used. With Class C IP addresses, the network ID is a longer segment than the host segment, we'll discuss in great detail what this is configured this way and the common situations of who uses them. For Class D IPs are multicasting addresses, they function basically as a broadcaster, sending a single message to many recipients. We'll diagram this one-to-many relationship for you and explain how both the sending and recipient machines are assigned addresses and receive their communications. And finally, our Class E IP address is strictly for experimental use. With each of the IP address classes, you'll come aware knowing how they are configured, where the network and host segments are, how the IP are used and the ranges of purposes they serve.
