ARP Overview

ARP Overview

This section describes the definition, background, and functions of ARP.


The Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) maps IP addresses into MAC addresses.


On a local area network (LAN), a host or a network device must learn the IP address of the destination host or device before sending data to it. Additionally, the host or network device must learn the physical address of the destination host or device because IP packets must be encapsulated into frames for transmission over a physical network. Therefore, the mapping from an IP address into a physical address is required. ARP is used to map IP addresses into physical addresses.
