‘This’ network and ‘this’ host address

An IP address with all 0’s in the host id, refers to this particular and the IP addresses with all 0’s in the network id refers to this particular network. This network addressing is useful in cases when a host wants to communicate with a network whose network address the host sends the ‘this’ type address and the local network will interpret it as ‘this’ network (that particular network).
