What IP addresses might you see at MIT ?
|This article collects information from multiple sources and presents it on a single page as a convenience, but could be out of date or missing information.|
The ranges in the following table were compiled from a variety of locations, including ARIN data and an MIT Libraries page.
|Range||CIDR Notation||ARIN Info||Organizational Entity|
|18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124|| 126.96.36.199/11

*ESnet (Energy Sciences Network) is used by universities, research labs, national labs, etc.
Note 1: There are two separate ranges: 18.104.22.168/16 and 22.214.171.124/16.
Note 2: Haystack's IP range is actually 6 consecutive /24s. That is, 126.96.36.199/24, 188.8.131.52/24, 184.108.40.206/24, etc.
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution ("WHOI") has a long affiliation with MIT, and in some cases, their machines count as "on campus" (e.g. for access to outgoing-legacy.mit.edu), whereas in other cases they don't (access to some MIT Libraries digital resources). Users at Woods Hole who are unable to access certain digital resources on campus should try using the Remote Access VPN or contacting the administrators of that resource.
Woods Hole has the IP address range 220.127.116.11/16 (128.128.x.x http://whois.arin.net/rest/net/NET-128-128-0-0-1)
- 18.104.22.168/17- Prisma Access (GlobalProtect) Cloud VPN
- 22.214.171.124/17- Prisma Access (GlobalProtect) Cloud VPN
Note: IP addresses assigned to devices connected to the Prisma Access Cloud VPN will be NAT'd to a when communicating out to sites on the Internet. No NAT is applied when connecting to destinations on MITnet.
- 10.29.0.0/16 --
NAT--> 126.96.36.199/16 [MIT SECURE]
- 10.31.0.0/16 --
NAT--> 188.8.131.52/16 [MIT]
- 10.189.0.0/17 --
NAT--> 184.108.40.206/24 [MIT GUEST]
Note: Devices are assigned an IP and then NAT'd to the target range when communicating out to sites on the Internet (or also to destinations on MITnet in the case of "MIT GUEST")
