according to wikipedia
An octet is a unit of digital information in computing and telecommunications that consists of eight bits. The term is often used when the term byte might be ambiguous, as historically there was no standard definition for the size of the byte.
An IPv6 address has 16 octets (bytes)
There are only 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who do not.
ok one more question:
13. What command would you run on a Windows 2008 server to make it function as a domain controller?
Click on start, Run… and type DCPROMO
Click on Start, Run ….and type IPCONFIG
Click on Start, Run ….and type NETSTAT
i never have fooled with win 2008 server so i don't know the commands yet.

Installs and removes Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).

@jmeeks49.....An IPv4 consists of 32 bits and these have been divided into 4 parts with 8 bits each which makes 32 bits. For instances, an IPv4 address 188.8.131.52 will be taken as 00000001.00000001.00000001.00000001 by computer systems. Now OCTETS are those 4 part with 8 bits each....So the Answer is, in an IPv4 there are 4 octets...Just for your information IPv6 is 128 bits long address....May be this can help you
If you are studying for CompTia Network+ certification, a good text book for preparation is Network+ Guide to Networks (sixth edition) by Tamara Dean (ISBN# 978-1-133-60189-6). The sixth edition is updated to reflect changes in the test. This book was written specifically to prepare for the CompTIA Network+ exams. I have viewed a few sample tests and recommend studying the book for successful certification testing.
If you only want to understand IP addressing, the following topics must be understood to answer questions about IP addressing:
decimal to binary conversation and vice versa
IPv4 dotted decimal and binary formats
default subnet, subnetting, and supernetting
IPv6 hexadecimal addressing format, including shorthand addresses.
Good luck. I admire people who attempt to improve their knowledge and abilities through study.
