Good question.
Check out this guide for a nice intro to networking.

To answer your question quickly, an internal ip is used to communicate with other machines on the same network and an external ip is used to communicate across different networks.

Hope this answered your question!

This is great, Kitten. I'm bookmarking it. Maybe a mod/admin can create a sidebar "Getting Started" button to include links like this?

Thank you community for your feedback :)

This helps me too!


Here Nice video tutorials

Once you have covered the basics with a tutorial, if you like learning by yourself you can always check the secutiry stackexchange :

i basically learned a lot from looking at this. there's a lot of information there but you have to find it ;)


And feel free to throw away some questions. We love questions...


dude, get book "computer security handbook, sixth edition".
It has topics about basics of networking and parts of networking very important to cyber security and hacking.
