Say a router is connected to two devices. Now the router will give those two devices different private IP addresses. The router itself has a private IP address (which serves as the default gateway for those two devices). The router also has a public IP address.
I understand the difference between public and private IP addresses.
But every now and then I see the term local IP address. This is sometimes used in context with private IP addresses.
So I'm confused if they are different or the same terms (private and local IP address). Are they synonyms? If they're different then how so?
