Private IP addresses that you can use for your environment:

10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255 (10.0.0.0/8)

172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 (172.16.0.0/12)

192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 (192.168.0.0/16)

169.254.0.0 - 169.254.255.255 (169.254.0.0/16)

Note   Note
The address range of 169.254.0.0/16 is Automatic Private IP addressing and you will not be able to use a default gateway with this type of addressing. Unless you need to I would avoid using this final one


Public IP addresses you could use:

192.0.2.0 - 192.0.2.255 (192.0.2.0/24)

198.51.100.0 - 198.51.100.255 (198.51.100.0/24)

203.0.113.0 - 203.0.113.255 (203.0.113.0/24)


You could use any of the above for addressing though you would typically use the private IP address ranges at the top for your scenario. If you wish to prevent internet access and you are statically assigning the addressing then you can simply not input a default gateway or DNS. These two fields are optional with only an address and subnet mask being necessary.

For more information on special addresses please refer to RFC (Request For Comments) 5735 - RFC 5735 - Special Use IPv4 Addresses

Hope This Helps,
