What is ARP? Explain briefly.




ARP abbreviated as Address Resolution Protocol. ARP is the protocol that transforms the IP address to an address suitable to the hardware type (that is, Ethernet addresses on an ether network). After normal routing protocols have completed their work, ARP springs comes into action. It is what really gets packets from one machine to other. Generally, you must not have to worry regarding ARP at all. Apart from in special setups, it must work completely transparently.
