  5. Hi Rene,

    What do the address 127.0.0.0 and 127.255.255.255 mean?
    I thought all the IPs that start with 127 can be used to refer our PC. When I ping them, I get the below messages.

    C:\Users\VijayKumar>ping 127.0.0.0

    Pinging 127.0.0.0 with 32 bytes of data:
    General failure.

    Ping statistics for 127.0.0.0:

    Are they reserved for network and broadcast addresses even though we won't be using them anywhere?

    Cheers,
    Vj
