any known users of NetRange 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
I have this very odd email address found with one of our employees....
A.f.a.i.k. 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 is:
NetRange: 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
NetType: IANA Special Use
Comment: This block is reserved for special purposes.
Please see RFC 1918 for additional information.
Here's my questions:
- Given that 1918 deals with allocation issues for "private Internets", is there a recording entity of this special address space beyond the formal IANA, which details the distribution of data from any "private Internet" once it enters the public Internet vice versa ?
- Whom to anyone's knowledge is known to be using (for special projects) or perhaps misusing this 172.17.0.1 ?
Greatly appreciate some insight, off list or on list, at your leisure.
best to all,
