Hi guys am stuck....help!!
How does a workstation use arp to determine if a host its trying to communicate with is in the local or a remote network? (i would have thought it would do a logical and but the books seem to say am wrong)
secondly what is the role of the default gateway vis a vis arp?ie why would a workstation choose to send a packet to the default gateway rather than issue an arp broadcast??
Thirdly,if proxy arp is not enabled on a router connecting two devices,will an arp broadcast be dropped even if the router has a path to the destination network?
Hope someone can switch on the lights for me.Will really appreciate.
