A host is trying to send a packet to a device on a remote LAN segment, but there are currently no mappings in its ARP cache. How will the device obtain a destination MAC address?

It will send a request to the DNS server for the destination MAC address.

It will send an ARP request for the MAC address of the destination device.

It will send the frame and use its own MAC address as the destination.

What are two potential network problems that can result from ARP operation? (Choose two.)

Multiple ARP replies result in the switch MAC address table containing entries that match the MAC addresses of hosts that are connected to the relevant switch port.

On large networks with low bandwidth, multiple ARP broadcasts could cause data communication delays.*

Network attackers could manipulate MAC address and IP address mappings in ARP messages with the intent of intercepting network traffic.*

Manually configuring static ARP associations could facilitate ARP poisoning or MAC address spoofing.

Large numbers of ARP request broadcasts could cause the host MAC address table to overflow and prevent the host from communicating on the network.

Refer to the exhibit. The exhibit shows a small switched network and the contents of the MAC address table of the switch. PC1 has sent a frame addressed to PC3. What will the switch do with the frame?

The switch will forward the frame to all ports.

Fill in the blank.
The binary number 0000 1010 can be expressed as “A” in hexadecimal.
What are two features of ARP? (Choose two.)

If a host is ready to send a packet to a local destination device and it has the IP address but not the MAC address of the destination, it generates an ARP broadcast.*

An ARP request is sent to all devices on the Ethernet LAN and contains the IP address of the destination host and its multicast MAC address.

When a host is encapsulating a packet into a frame, it refers to the MAC address table to determine the mapping of IP addresses to MAC addresses.

If a device receiving an ARP request has the destination IPv4 address, it responds with an ARP reply.*

If no device responds to the ARP request, then the originating node will broadcast the data packet to all devices on the network segment.
