An ethernet protocol used to translate IP network addresses into ethernet hardware addresses (also known as Media Access Control (MAC) addresses).
(ARP) The data link layer protocol used by the IP layer of routers & hosts in a TCP/IP network. It is used to determine a local hardware address of a node on a directly attached LAN, given its IP address responds with its hardware address.
A protocol used to dynamically discover the low level physical network hardware address that corresponds to the higher level protocol address for a given host. ARP is limited to physical network systems that support broadcast packets that can be heard by all hosts on the network. A protocol within the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) suite that "maps" Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to Ethernet addresses. TCP/IP requires Address Resolution Protocol for use with Ethernet.
The TCP/IP protocol that translates an Internet address into the hardware address of a network interface card(NIC)
The protocol used for mapping an IP address to a hardware media address.
ARP is the protocol used by Internet Protocol (IP) (as in Transmission Control Protocol ([TCP]/IP) for address resolution. Address resolution refers to the ability of a station to resolve another station's media access control (MAC) (hardware) address given its IP address.
A protocol used to find the network interface that "owns" a particular IP address. On LANs, this is used to get the Layer 2 address of a host, so that IP transmission can take place over Layer 2 protocols like Ethernet or Token-Ring.
A protocal within the Transmission control Protocol/Internet protocol (TCP/IP)suite that "MAPS" IP addresses to Ethernet addresses. TCP/IP requires ARP for use with Ethernet. ... more
A TCP/IP protocol used to map an IP address to a physical hardware address.
A set of communications instructions/rules sued by communications interface equipment & computers to map or forward IP data packets to a hardware address.
The lnternet and TCP/IP protocol used to bind dynamically a high-level IP address, such as an lnternet address, to a low-level physical hardware address. ARP operates only across a single physical network and is limited to networks supporting hardware broadcast.
The Internet protocol used to dynamically map Internet addresses to physical (hardware) addresses on LANs.
(ARP) A protocol for mapping an IP address to a physical machine address that is recognised on a LAN.
A protocol used to adjust addresses between different networks or domains.
Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is a protocol for mapping an Internet Protocol address to a physical machine address that is recognized in the local network. A table, usually called the ARP cache, is used to maintain a correlation between each MAC address and its corresponding IP address. ARP provides the protocol rules for making this correlation and providing address conversion in both directions.
ARP) A member of the TCP/IP protocol suite used to resolve a destinations host's hardware Media Access Control (MAC) address from it's known IP address. See also RARP
Used primarily with IP -- Network Layer to resolve addresses.
(ARP) - Transmission Control Protocol/ Internet Protocol ( TCP/IP) protocol that dynamically binds a Network-Layer IP address to a Data-Link-Layer physical hardware address, e.g., Ethernet address.
Within an ethernet local area network (LAN), machines identify each other by MAC addresses. On the Internet, however, machines identify each other by Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (see DNS below) such as 184.108.40.206. Thus, to reach its final destination, a message must be delivered to a MAC address which must be resolved from its IP address. The ARP protocol does this. Within an ethernet LAN, it broadcasts a message to all the machines asking, "If this is your IP ddress, send back to me your MAC address." The responding machine (if any) sends back a message with the required MAC address, and the sender then stores that address locally (in its ARP cache) for future reference.
The Internet (TCP/IP) Protocol that can dynamically resolve an Internet address to a physical hardware address. ARP can be used only across a single physical network and in networks that support the hardware broadcast feature.
Internet protocol that dynamically maps Internet addresses to physical (hardware) addresses on local area networks. ARP is limited to networks that support hardware broadcast.
A protocol for determining a host's Ethernet address from its Internet address.
One of the protocols provided by TCP/IP that dynamically maps between Internet addresses, Baseband Adapter addresses, X.25 addresses, and Token-Ring Adapter addresses on a local area network.
Used to dynamically discover the low level physical networkhardware address that corresponds to the high level IP address fora given host. ARP is limited to physical network systems thatsupport broadcast packets that can be heard by all hosts on thenetwork. It is defined in RFC 826. See also: proxy ARP. Administrative Domain (AD)
A method of converting protocol addresses (e.g., IP addresses) to local network addresses (e.g., Ethernet addresses).
Used to dynamically discover the low level physical network hardware address that corresponds to the high level IP address for a given host. ARP is limited to physical network systems that support broadcast packets that can be heard by all hosts on the network. It is defined in RFC 826. See also: proxy ARP.
Internet protocol (IP) used in IPv4 to map an IP address to a media access control (MAC) address. A MAC is a 48-bit code for layer 2 networking maintained by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and hardwired into network adapters. Also called Ethernet address.
Internet protocol used to map an IP address to a MAC address. Defined in RFC 826.
A protocol of the IETF for converting network (IP) addresses to 48-bit Ethernet addresses.
In TCP/IP, a protocol that uses broadcast traffic on the local network to resolve a logically assigned IP address to its physical hardware or media access control layer address. In ATM, ARP is used two different ways. For classical IP over ATM, ARP is used to resolve addresses to ATM hardware addresses. For ATM LAN emulation, ARP is used to resolve Ethernet/802.3 or Token Ring addresses to ATM hardware addresses. See also: Internet Protocol (IP); Message Authentication Code (MAC); packet; Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
In computer networking, the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is the method for finding a host's hardware address when only its network layer address is known. Due to the overwhelming prevalence of IPv4 and Ethernet, ARP is primarily used to translate IP addresses to Ethernet MAC addresses. It is also used for IP over other LAN technologies, such as Token Ring, FDDI, or IEEE 802.11, and for IP over ATM.
