Question #2

Which of the following is used to find the Media Access Control address (MAC) that matches with a known Internet Protocol (IP) address?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: A

ARP is used to find the Media Access Control address (MAC) that matches with a known Internet Protocol (IP) address.

The Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is a computer networking protocol for determining a network host's link layer or hardware address when only its Internet Layer (IP) or Network Layer address is known

Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) is used to find the IP address that matches an Ethernet address.

ICMP is a management protocol and messaging service provider for IP (e.g. PING).

UDP runs over IP. It is a best effort protocol that offers no reliability. UDS is used for application such as streaming media, voice over IP, the DNS protocol, as well as the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Question #3

Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) interrogates the network by sending out a?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: A

ARP interrogates the network by sending out a broadcast seeking a network node that has a specific IP address, and asks it to reply with its hardware address. A broadcast message is sent to everyone whether or not the message was requested. A traditional unicast is a 'one-to-one' or 'narrowcast' message. A multicast is a 'one-to-many' message that is traditionally only sent to those machine that requested the information. Semicast is an imposter answer.

Question #4

When a station communicates on the network for the first time, which of the following protocol would search for and find the Internet Protocol (IP) address that matches with a known Ethernet address?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: B

The RARP protocol sends out a packet, which includes its MAC address and a request to be informed of the IP address that should be assigned to that MAC address.

ARP does the opposite by broadcasting a request to find the Ethernet address that matches a known IP address.

ICMP supports packets containing error, control, and informational messages (e.g. PING).

UDP runs over IP and is used primarily for broadcasting messages over a network.

Question #5

Which of the following protocols' primary function is to send messages between network devices regarding the health of the network?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: D

Its primary function is to send messages between network devices regarding the health of the network. ARP matches an IP address to an Ethernet address. RARP matches and Ethernet address to an IP address. ICMP runs on top of IP.
