What is Proxy ARP?
is using a router to answer ARP requests. This will be done when the
originating host believes that a destination is local, when in fact is
lies beyond router.
What is EGP (Exterior Gateway Protocol)?
It is the protocol the routers in neighboring autonomous systems use to
identify the set of networks that can be reached within or via each
What is IGP (Interior Gateway Protocol)?
It is any routing protocol used within an autonomous system.
What is OSPF?
It is an Internet routing protocol that scales well, can route traffic
along multiple paths, and uses knowledge of an Internet's topology to
make accurate routing decisions.
What is Kerberos?
It is an authentication service developed at the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology. Kerberos uses encryption to prevent intruders from
discovering passwords and gaining unauthorized access to files.
What is SLIP (Serial Line Interface Protocol)?
It is a very simple protocol used for transmission of IP datagrams
across a serial line.
What is Mail Gateway?
It is a system that performs a protocol translation between different
electronic mail delivery protocols.
What is RIP (Routing Information Protocol)?
It is a simple protocol used to exchange information between the
What is NVT (Network Virtual Terminal)?
It is a set of rules defining a very simple virtual terminal
interaction. The NVT is used in the start of a Telnet session.
What is source route?
It is a sequence of IP addresses identifying the route a datagram must
follow. A source route may optionally be included in an IP datagram
What is BGP (Border Gateway Protocol)?
It is a protocol used to advertise the set of networks that can be
reached with in an autonomous system. BGP enables this information to be
shared with the autonomous system. This is newer than EGP (Exterior
What is Gateway-to-Gateway protocol?
It is a protocol formerly used to exchange routing information between
Internet core routers.
What is Project 802?
It is a project started by IEEE to set standards that enable
intercommunication between equipment from a variety of manufacturers. It
is a way for specifying functions of the physical layer, the data link
layer and to some extent the network layer to allow for
interconnectivity of major LAN protocols.
It consists of the following:
802.1 is an internetworking standard for compatibility of different LANs
and MANs across protocols.
802.2 Logical link control (LLC) is the upper sublayer of the data link
layer which is non-architecture-specific, that is remains the same for
all IEEE-defined LANs. Media access control (MAC) is the lower sublayer
of the data link layer that contains some distinct modules each carrying
proprietary information specific to the LAN product being used. The
Ethernet LAN (802.3), Token ring LAN (802.4), Token bus LAN (802.5).
802.6 is distributed queue dual bus (DQDB) designed to be used in MANs.
What is silly window syndrome?
It is a problem that can ruin TCP performance. This problem occurs when
data are passed to the sending TCP entity in large blocks, but an
interactive application on the receiving side reads 1 byte at a time.
What is a Multi-homed Host?
It is a host that has a multiple network interfaces and that requires
multiple IP addresses is called as a Multi-homed Host.
