Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Before assigning addresses, design an IP addressing scheme that meets the requirements of your networking infrastructure. Figure 1.5 shows the tasks involved in designing your IP addressing system, including planning your address assignment model, address allocation, and public or private addressing. Most organizations choose to use classless IP addressing, classless IP routing protocols, and route summarization.
