Instead, use one of the available ‘TEST-NET’ IPv4 or IPv6 ranges documented in RFC 6890, such as; 192.0.2.0/24 198.51.100.0/24 203.0.113.0/24 ❌ 1.2.3.4 ✅ 192.0.2.4 Pass it on to all of your fellow developers, documentation writers, and so forth. Full RFC is here; https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/rfc6890/
