Why is 192.168.x.x addresses referrenced as "public" IP (SDN 132-WBT - slide 32)?

Slide 32 references 192.168.42.99 as a public IP.  192.168.x.x is not accessible to the Internet and not routable.

Hi there, this is a common standard in networking courses. We use RFC 1918 private addresses exclusively throughout or training materials. We then label the examples to point out that if this were an actual installation, you would use your assigned address (your "public" address) in this location. I hope that helps, thanks! Paul
