Deciding on an IP Addressing Format for Your Network

    When you plan your network addressing scheme, consider the following factors:

  • Type of IP address that you want to use: IPv4 or IPv6

  • Number of potential systems on your network

  • Number of systems that are multihomed, or routers, which require multiple network interface cards (NICs), each with individual IP addresses

  • Whether to use private addresses on your network

  • Whether to have a DHCP server that manages pools of IP addresses
