subnet mask

A ___ is a special 32-bit number that, when combined with a devices IP address, informs the rest of the network about the segment or network to which the device is attached


___ is a process of subdividing a single class of networks into multiple, smaller logical networks, or segments.

ip address

Whether connecting to the Internet or to another computer within a LAN, every node on a network must have a unique ____

well known ports

Ports ranging from 0 to 1023; assigned to processes that only the operating system or administrator of the system can access.

registered ports

Ports ranging from 1024 to 49151; accessible to network users and processes that do not have special administrative privileges.
