Please, I need to know if the IP IP 192.169.0.135 can be used... as a local/private or public host?

There are different rules to local/private ips?

Thanks a lot!

Private IP ranges:

10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255 /8
172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 /12
192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 /16

192.169.0.135 does not fall in those specified ranges so most likely it is a Public IP

    Just because an IP address is not in one of the private address ranges does not mean it is a public address. There are other ranges which cannot be globally routed, and so they are not public addresses. See IANA IPv4 Special-Purpose Address Registry. – Ron Maupin Oct 20 '16 at 15:02
  • Yes i know. I should have been more clear. thanks for pointing that out – nd510 Oct 20 '16 at 23:34
