RFC 1918, previously RFC1597.
Here is an excerpt from section 3:
10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255 (10/8 prefix)
172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 (172.16/12 prefix)
192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 (192.168/16 prefix)
] Now for a brief excursion into the totally mundane.
] Can anyone point me to the internet-draft/RFC that
] specifies the "reserverd networks" (i.e. the class A,B, & C [sic]
] network numbers that are considered "safe" (no-one should be routing them)
] to use as test/intranet/private IP networks?
] I need to know all of the numbers, i.e. I believe 10.0.0.0 is the class A
] component of the list.
] Thanks in advance.
