7: A routed network about to build its routing tables dynamically Router A has just come online. Because the two attached networks (1 and 2) have been programmed into it, Router A immediately adds these to its routing table, assigning a hop value of 1 to each. The hop value is 1 instead of 0 because this information is relative to other attached networks, not the router. For example, if the router is advertising the route to Network 1 on Network 2, then one hop is appropriate because any system sending information to Network 1 from Network 2 would have to travel one hop (the router itself) to get there.

11. NFS is a service that allows file sharing over IP. It uses UDP as its underlying transport protocol. Notice that all data acknowledgments are in the form of a request for additional information. The destination system (Thor) assumes that the last packet was received if the source system (Loki) requests additional information. Conversely, if Loki does not receive a reply from Thor, NFS takes care of requesting the information again. As long as we have a stable connection that does not require a large number of retransmissions, allowing NFS to provide error correction is a very efficient method of communicating because it does not generate unnecessary acknowledgments.

3 when determining how best to deliver data. Once a system knows where it needs to send the information, it transmits the appropriate ARP request. 3: ARP decision process All systems are capable of caching information learned through ARP requests. For example, if Fritz wished a few seconds later to send another packet of data to Wren, he would not have to transmit a new ARP request for the router’s node address since this value would be saved in memory. This memory area is referred to as the ARP cache.
