  1. ARP: Address Resolution Protocol Computer Network System Sirak Kaewjamnong

  2. IP and MAC Address • Stations need to know MAC address to communicate • Hardware MAC address • Ethernet 6 bytes • Token ring 2 or 6 bytes • FDDI 2 or 6 bytes • How does IP address get mapped to MAC address? • Manual configuration by hand is tedious • automatic process by ARP

  3. ARP Protocol • RFC 826 address resolution protocol • ARP map any network level address (such as IP) to its corresponding data link address (such as Ethernet) • support protocol in data link layers, not data link layer protocol

  4. ARP in Operation • Host A want to resolve MAC address of C • A sends broadcast ARP request • A gets unicast ARP reply from C Me with 00:F4:DF:80:4C:52 Who has IP 172.28.80.25? No, not me Ohm..No, not me D B C A 172.28.80.5 172.28.80.15 172.28.80.25 172.28.80.35

  5. Frame header ARP/RARP message Datalink frame 0 15 16 31 Hardware type: 16 Protocol type :16 hlen :8 plen : 8 ARP operation Sender MAC address (bytes 0-3) Sender MAC address (bytes 4-5) Sender IP address (bytes 0-1) Sender IP address (bytes 2-3) Dest MAC address (bytes 0-1) Destination MAC address (bytes 2-5) Destination IP address (bytes 0-3) ARP datagrams

  6. Header details • Hardware type : Ethernet = 1, ARCnet = 7, localtalk = 11 • Protocol type : IP = 0X800 • hlen : length of hardware address, Ethernet = 6 bytes • plen : length of protocol address, IP = 4 bytes • ARP operation : ARP request = 1, ARP reply = 2, RARP request =3 RARP reply =4

  7. ARP Request Packet IP 172.28.80.96 MAC 00:50:BA:49:9D:B9 IP 172.28.80.100 MAC ? Sample ARP request Ethernet packet Dest MAC (broadcast) FF:FF:FF:FF:FF Source MAC 00:50:BA:49:9D:B9 ARP frame type 0x0806 Ethernet / IP 0x01 0x800 MAC=6 / IP = 4 / request 0x06 0x04 0x001 Source MAC 00:50:BA:49:9D:B9 Source IP 172.28.80.96 Dest MAC (unknow) 00:00:00:00:00:00 Dest IP 172.28.80.100 Ethernet checksum Checksum

  8. ARP Reply Packet IP 172.28.80.96 MAC 00:50:BA:49:9D:B9 IP 172.28.80.100 MAC 00:02:7A:D2:B3:00 Sample ARP request Ethernet packet Dest MAC (unicast) 00:50:BA:49:9D:B9 Source MAC 00:02:7A:D2:B3:00 ARP frame type 0x0806 Ethernet / IP 0x01 0x800 MAC=6 / IP = 4 / reply 0x06 0x04 0x002 Source MAC 00:02:7A:D2:B3:00 Source IP 172.28.80.100 Dest MAC 00:50:BA:49:9D:B9 Dest IP 172.28.80.96 Ethernet checksum Checksum

  9. ARP Mechanism • Each node maintains the ARP cache • It first looks in the cache to find entry first • if the entry is not used for a period (approximate 15 minutes), it is delete • Receive node can adds an MAC address entry for source station in its own cache • ARP traffic load • hosts quickly add cache entries • all of hosts on a subnet are booted at the same time? Flurry of ARP request and reply

  10. Proxy ARP IP 172.28.80.96 MAC 00:50:BA:49:9D:B9 Y IP 172.28.100.100 MAC 00:02:7A:D2:B3:00 X • One node answer ARP request for another: Router R answers for Y • useful when some nodes on a network cannot support subnet • X do not understand subnet, so it thinks that Y is on the same subnet • Router must be configured to be a proxy ARP R X to Y request --> <--R send 172.28.100.100 with 00:50:BA:49:00:BB IP 172.28.80.1 MAC 00:50:BA:49:00:BB

  11. RARP • Reverse ARP : map MAC address to IP address • for device that cannot store IP, usually diskless workstations • Need to set up server with RARP table • Use the same frame format • 0x0835 for Ethernet RARP request • operation 0x003 = RARP request 0x004 = RARP reply • RARP can not operate across router , BOOTP is more spread
