ping

“The ping command allows you to test basic IP connectivity between hosts. It uses the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) to send an ICMP echo request to the destination host. The host is then expected to reply with an ICMP echo reply. When successful, you have confirmed that the network can deliver a packet from the source to the destination and back again.”

“Ping was named after the sound sonar makes, as the echo request and echo reply function is similar to the process of active sonar.”

Address Resolution Protocol (ARP)

Address Resolution Protocol (ARP)

“Remember that each IP packet must be encapsulated in a Layer 2 frame before it can be sent to the next hop. The Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is used to determine the destination media access control (MAC) address for that frame.”

“After a client has resolved a name to an IP address, it determines whether that IP address is on its local subnet. If it is, it issues an ARP broadcast on the segment asking for the holder of that IP address to respond with its MAC address. If the destination host is not on the local subnet, the client issues an ARP request for the default gateway IP address.”

“ARP requests are not issued for every bit of communication. As a client makes requests, the replies are remembered in the ARP cache. Each time a client needs to encapsulate a packet in a frame, it checks the ARP cache to see if it has a MAC match for the destination IP.”
