CISSP Exam Preparation (Question 227)

(227) To obtain an IP address from a MAC address, what mechanism is used?
A. Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP)
B. Address Resolution Protocol (ARP)
C. Data Link layer
D. Network Address Translation (NAT)
The Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) sends out a packet that includes a MAC address and a request to be informed of the IP address that should be assigned to that MAC. Diskless workstations that need to obtain their IP address from the network may use this process.
