  Address Resolution Protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Due to the overwhelming prevalence of IPv4 and ethernet, ARP is primarily used to translate ethernet MAC addresses from IP addresses.
ARP Mediation refers to the process of resolving Layer 2 addresses when different resolution protocols are used on either circuit, for e.g.
Note that the sender and target address blocks have been swapped (the sender of the reply is the target of the request; the target of the reply is the sender of the request).

IP operates at the network layer and is not concerned with the link addresses of individual nodes which are to be used.The address resolution protocol (arp) is therefore used to translate between the two types of address.

 ARP, Address Resolution Protocol.
ARP is used to translate protocol addresses to hardware interface addresses.
Otherwise, the ARP Helper Address is the IP address of the router that provided the routing information indicating that the next-hop address was on the same link level network as the associated physical interface.
By removing address resolution constraints, Directed ARP enables dynamic routing protocols such as BGP and OSPF to advertise and use routing information that leads to next-hop addresses on "foreign" IP networks.

Reverse ARP, document in RFC 903, is a fairly simple bootstrapping protocol that allows a workstation to broadcast using its Ethernet address, and expect a server to reply, telling it its IP address.

 Reverse Address Resolution Protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) is a protocol used to resolve an IP address from a given hardware address (such as an Ethernet address).
The primary limitations are that each MAC must be manually configured on a central server, and it is limited to only the IP address, leaving subnetting, gateways, and other information to be configured by hand.
Another disadvantage with RARP compared to BOOTP or DHCP is the fact that it is a non-IP protocol.

 Define Address Resolution Protocol - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: ARP   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is a protocol for mapping an Internet Protocol address (IP address) to a physical machine address that is recognized in the local network.
The ARP program looks in the ARP cache and, if it finds the address, provides it so that the packet can be converted to the right packet length and format and sent to the machine.
If no entry is found for the IP address, ARP broadcasts a request packet in a special format to all the machines on the LAN to see if one machine knows that it has that IP address associated with it.

 EHS Company - - Primer: the Address Resolution Protocol -
ARP achieves this by issuing a low-level broadcast onto the network, requesting that the system that is using the specified IP address respond with its hardware address.
When a device issues an ARP request, it fills in three of the four address-related fields, providing it’s own hardware and IP address, as well as the IP address of the target (the target’s hardware address is unknown, and so that field is filled with zeroes).
ARP cache timeout values that are too high will cause problems whenever a host is assigned a different IP address, since the other hosts who have an older entry in their caches will still try to send data to the old (and invalid) hardware address.

 ARP: Address Resolution Protocol and InARP (Inverse ARP)

The Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is the last of the four core TCP/IP protocols that work at the Internet layer.As we’ve discussed, each NIC has a unique MAC address.
ARP is responsible for maintaining the mappings of IP addresses to MAC addresses.
These mappings are stored in the arp cache so if the same IP address needs to be matched to a MAC address again, the mapping can be found in the cache; it’s not necessary to repeat the discovery process.
