dear sir,
we say that when we are on the net every machine has a unique ip address but how does this treffic is controlled
b'coz any time the total number of user mat exceed
255.255.255.255
but when we connect to any site for say yahoo
we mention its ip add only ex(263.67.98.23) and also total number does not exceed a certain limit then how are we able to
adress so many different sites individually
thanking u in advance

Hi!
Well actually you have it a lil wrong.. well there are many servers that host the web site. for Example www.yahoo.com will be running on a specific server whose ip u get by tracerouting to it..
but the other machines on the net have a DHCP usually.. that is dynamic host IP.. thus every time you connect to the web you are aloocated a free ip..
But static ip sure is flooding and I guess the www consortium is doing someting about it.. i.e. increasing the number of bits in the address...
More over if you dunno then the IP actually means noting when compared to the NIC Address that is used by the NETBIOS in ARP ing adn RARP ing the machine.. well if you know systems in a network then they all have a unique NIC Address.. doesnt that have to overflow as well??!!
I hope i ve cleared your doubt.. please let me know if I havent.. If I am worng please correct me.
