IP Ranges

IP ranges objects in TeemIp represent sets of contiguous IP addresses that belong to a given subnet. Typically, IP ranges are used to reserved IP space for an application (like DHCP) or to group devices that share the same function (like printers).

IP Range Properties

Name Type Mandatory?
General Information
Organization Foreign key to a(n) Organization Yes
Usage Foreign key to a(n) IP Range usage No
DHCP Range Yes or No Yes
Note Multiline character string No
Requestor Foreign key to a(n) Person No
Allocation date Date (year-month-day) No
IP Information
Subnet Foreign key to a(n) Subnet Yes
Name Alphanumeric string Yes
First IP of Range IPv4 or IPv6 Address Yes
Last IP of Range IPv4 or IPv6 Address Yes
IP Range Usages are typology elements defined in the Data Administration module. One set of IP Range Usages needs to be defined per organization.

Tabs

Tab Description
Contacts All the contacts for this IP Object
Documents All the documents linked to this IP Object
Notifications List of related notifications - Present if a notification trigger exists for that class
Registered IPs IP addresses belonging to the IP range
History History of all changes made to the IP range

Listing IP Ranges

The IP Ranges shortcuts of the IP Management module on the explorer menu display all the IPv4 or IPv6 Ranges of the selected organization or all IPv4 or IPv6 ranges if no organization is selected.

The “Registered IPs” column gives the percentage of the IP Range that is already consumed by all the IPs within the range.

The Search tab will shorten the list according to the filtering elements you'll define in it.

Creating a new IP Range

From the listing view, click on the “New…” menu to display the creation form.

An implicit but intuitive set of rules must be followed when an IP range is created:

  • A range must be fully contained within the subnet it belongs to,
  • Its name must be unique within the subnet,
  • It cannot overlap with other IP ranges of the same subnet,
  • It cannot contain another IP range

Modify an IP Range

From the detailed view of an IP Range, click on the “Modify” button.

The parameters that can be changed here are: Name, First and Last IPs, Usage, DHCP range, Note, Requestor as well as the lists of Contacts and Documents attached to the IP Range.

Other Actions

Next to standard actions, a set of specific actions can be applied to IP Ranges. These can be found in the “Other Actions” menu available from the details page.

These specific actions are described in below chapters.

List & Pick IPs

The List & Pick IPs action simply lists, in numerical order, all the IP addresses hosted within an IP Range. It lists as well the free IP addresses and provides the possibility to directly register one of them.

The list is limited to 4096 IPs. Should the subnet contain more IPs, then a preliminary screen asks the user to shorten subnet boundaries so that less than 4096 IPs are displayed.

All free IPs can be created by clicking the appropriate button. This will open a popup window where all IP details can be registered. If you don’t wish to proceed, the top right menus will lead you to your next page.

CSV Export IPs

This function exports in a text format all IPs of a given subnet: IPs that are registered (regardless their status: allocated, reserved, released or unassigned) and IPs that are not registered and that don’t exit as an object in TeemIp data base.

The list is limited to 4096 IPs. Should the subnet contain more IPs, then a preliminary screen asks the user to shorten subnet boundaries so that less than 4096 IPs are displayed.

Clicking on “Apply” will generate the list.

Next to the attributes of an IP address, additional information fields are exported with each IP address:

Field Possible values Comment
Registered yes / no True if registered in data base
Id Number Id of object in data base
