Huawei RTN and its mangement ip address 129.9.3.239/16 ?

Recommended Posts

Dear Experts

 

I have worked with Huawei RTN 950 (microwave transmission equipment)

 

https://www.huawei.c...e/en_rtn950.htm

 

Huawei is largest Chinese telecommunications equipment manufacturer in the world according to :

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huawei

 

Auto discovery RTN software that we need to install on our laptop called WEBLCT in the link below and that software shows that RTN ip address is 129.9.3.239/16

To access it locally via a management Ethernet port we have to assign the ip address for our laptop to be same network address of the RTN something like 129.9.3.241/16 to establish connectivity

 

When I ping this ip address 129.9.3.239/16 it got ping successfullyd then I can access RTN via the utility /software that as installed on a laptop

 

My question isn't this ip address is public not a private address ? How can that be assigned for local access ?

 

Thx

 

Thanks

I just found the link that is related to my first post

 

http://support.huawe...81?section=j008

 

Procedure

  1. Start a laptop and log in to the operating system.
     
  2. Set the IP address of the laptop.
     
    The IP address must meet the following requirements:
    • The IP address is in the same network segment (the default network segment is 129.9.0.0) as the NE IP address, but is different from the NE IP address.
       
    • Its subnet mask is the same as that of the NE IP address (the default subnet mask is 255.255.0.0).
       
    • The default gateway IP address is blank.

[*]Use a network cable to connect the network interface of the laptop and the NMS/COM interface of the system control, cross-connect, and timing board.

My confusion why would public ip addresses be used for a local access ?

Yes, 129.*.*.* is definitely in the public IP range ( Class B )

 

http://www.vlsm-calc.net/ipclasses.php

 

It can be used as a private (in house) address because it has been specifically assigned to an entity by ARIN:

 

Direct Assignment: IP address space assigned directly from ARIN to an organization for its own exclusive use.
*

 

*See this link, under heading "Nets" --> https://www.arin.net...abase_text.html

 

From a whois query:

 

NetRange:	 129.9.0.0 - 129.9.255.255
CIDR:		 129.9.0.0/16
NetName:	 CHRYSLER-NET
NetHandle:	 NET-129-9-0-0-1
Parent:		 NET129 (NET-129-0-0-0-0)
NetType:	 Direct Assignment

 

This Net is a direct assignment (exclusive use) granted to Chrysler by ARIN.

 

Hope that answers your question, Zillah. :)

Thanks Eric appreciate your help this is clear to m why public ip addresses used as private one

 

 

Second question

NetRange: 129.9.0.0 - 129.9.255.255

CIDR: 129.9.0.0/16

NetName: CHRYSLER-NET

NetHandle: NET-129-9-0-0-1

Parent: NET129 (NET-129-0-0-0-0)

NetType: Direct Assignment

 

ip lookup showing below (pay attention to the bold words):

 

Registration Date: 6/18/87

Range: 129.9.0.0-129.9.255.255

Org: Chrysler Group LLC

Org Handle: CHRYS-2-Z

Address: Chrysler Group LLC

Network Services Department

  • Huawei was found 1987 by Ren Zhengfei the same year as Chrysler Group LLC had range of ip addresses registered under their name .
  • Huawei is using the same range of addresses as per the link above.
  • Chrysler Group LLC is something to do with Network Services Department

 

Then Chrrysler might be affiliated to Huawei, otherwise the giant manufacture company (as per link below) won't be able to use those ip addresses in their gears

There seems to be some relationship between Chrysler and Huawei, but I can't say anything for certain. You're getting into the realm of corporate/business law. This is way outside of my areas of expertise.

 

I will say one thing, I noticed a TON of bad press and reports online regarding the Chinese company Huawei. It seems they're into espionage, patent infringement, business spying, bot-nets, etc. Some bad stuff.

Yeah but can you actually believe the reports or is it simply propaganda and false flag stuff?

Yes I do agree with that,, need further investigation which is off topic

 

Just I thought not necessary to find an answer , for a manufacturer does it need to use others public ip addresses while it has an options to use private ip addresses (Class A, B, C) like all other manufactures (netgears, cisco, Dlink,,,,,Ericsson,,,,) ??

To be honest, I just don't know. I'd be curious to know what Aryeh (Goretsky) thinks about this.
