  • class E

In these classes class A, B, C are using for local area networks and wide area networks. & remaining class D for multicasting networks and class E for Research and development. These class are defined in ranges as follows :

  • Class A : 0.0.0.0 to 127.255.255.255
  • Class B : 128.0.0.0 to 191.255.255.255
  • Class C : 192.0.0.0 to 223.0.0.0
  • Class D : 224.0.0.0 to 239.0.0.0
  • Class E : 240.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255
