IP v4 has reached IANA exhaustion


Well-known member
It's official, IP v4 has reached IANA exhaustion. There's still quite a few more IP (v4s) to give out though.

With the ubiquity of NAT these days, ipv4 will live on a lot longer.
Requires people to use NAT though. I sell software to a large university here in the UK which gives each deskop computer an individual and unique public IP. I've no idea how they get away with it. What's silly is that they give their wifi aps, routers and switches on other parts of their network IP's from the designated internal-use blocks. :confused:
