Private ip addresses

The following range of ip addresses are reserved for use within your LAN (local area network). Nothing on the internet can have these ip addresses.        -    -  -  - (Reserved for automatic private ip addressing)

When you send a message to one of these ip addresses, if that  address doesn't exist within your network, then that host is considered unreachable. Your NAT server will not attempt send out a request to this ip, out into the internet.
