RFC1918 states 3 blocks of IP for private internal use. They are

10.0.0.0/8
172.16.0.0/12
192.168.0.0/16

They are not routed because ISPs block them entering their bgp because multiple customers can have similar IP range. But in your lab, you can route them. They are not routable in a sence they should be for internal use and reserve for that.

Because of the subnet /15 makes the range 172.16.0.0 to 172.17.255.255 so technically its netowork  falls outside of 'private' reserved networks, think kind of a trick question.

Isn't 172.16.0.0 to 172.17.255.255 (subnet for 172.16.128.0/15) completely contained within 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255 (172.16.0.0/12)?  It seems to me that this IS a private non-routable address.

tmoore1962 is wrong here.

172.16.128.0/15 aka subnet 172.16.0.0 mask 255.254.0.0 (range 172.16.0.0-172.17.255.255) completely contains within 172.16.0.0/12 (range 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255) private range and not routable.

Yes, It is a Private non routable address.

Isnt this  within the class B range within the 172.16.0.0    172.31.255.255  

Yes, it falls within.

Ive seen this address in practice test 172.16.128.0/15 and it isnt flagged as a private address  What am I missing

Practice test answer seems to be wrong here. Is Comptia selling practice tests? You know,  dumps are blindly followed by DUMBs.

The 172.16.0.0/15 range is completely private - it must be.

The 172.16.0.0/12 range is private, so a smaller mask must be contained within that range.  Check here...

http://jodies.de/ipcalc

Address:   172.16.128.0          10101100.0001000 0.10000000.00000000
Netmask:   255.254.0.0 = 15      11111111.1111111 0.00000000.00000000
Wildcard:  0.1.255.255           00000000.0000000 1.11111111.11111111
=>

And if you need another confirmation: Yes, it is private, The only "issue" is that 172.16.0.0/12 is usually divided into Class B subnets, which are /16, but in fact it doesn't matter as long as the mask does not exceed /12. 172.16.0.0/11 would certainly not been considered as "private" anymore.

This post will be read by many other as it comes up in Google search.

"Because of the subnet /15 makes the range 172.16.0.0 to 172.17.255.255 so technically its network falls outside of 'private' reserved networks," is definitely not an accepted excellent answer.

(sorry I am not asking points, please don't take me otherwise)
