Address Resolution Protocol This lesson covers ARP, which stands for Address Resolution Protocol. This allows computers to discover which IP address is associated with which MAC address. ARP helps us discover what specific network interface card a packet is being sent too. ARP requests allow us to form tables so we can map ports to different MAC addresses and send specific packets to specific MAC addresses.
