Unformatted text preview: Chapter 5 Review Questions 1. The transportation mode, e.g., car, bus, train, car. 2. Although each link guarantees that an IP datagram sent over the link will be received at the other end of the link without errors, it is not guaranteed that IP datagrams will arrive at the ultimate destination in the proper order. With IP, datagrams in the same TCP connection can take different routes in the network, and therefore arrive out of order. TCP is still needed to provide the receiving end of the application the byte stream in the correct order. Also, IP can lose packets due to routing loops or equipment failures. 3. Framing: there is also framing in IP and TCP; link access; reliable delivery: there is also reliable delivery in TCP; flow control: there is also flow control in TCP; error detection: there is also error detection in IP and TCP; error correction; full duplex: TCP is also full duplex. 4. There will be a collision in the sense that while a node is transmitting it will start to receive a packet from the other node. 5. Slotted Aloha: 1, 2 and 4 (slotted ALOHA is only partially decentralized, since it requires the clocks in all nodes to be synchronized). Token ring: 1, 2, 3, 4. 6. In polling, a discussion leader allows only one participant to talk at a time, with each participant getting a chance to talk in a round-robin fashion. For token ring, there isn’t a discussion leader, but there is wine glass that the participants take turns holding. A participant is only allowed to talk if the participant is holding the wine glass. 7. When a node transmits a frame, the node has to wait for the frame to propagate around the entire ring before the node can release the token. Thus, if L/R is small as compared to t prop , then the protocol will be inefficient. 8. 2 48 MAC addresses; 2 32 IPv4 addresses; 2 128 IPv6 addresses. 9. C’s adapter will process the frames, but the adapter will not pass the datagrams up the protocol stack. If the LAN broadcast address is used, then C’s adapter will both process the frames and pass the datagrams up the protocol stack. 10. An ARP query is sent in a broadcast frame because the querying host does not which adapter address corresponds to the IP address in question. For the response, the sending node knows the adapter address to which the response should be sent, so there is no need to send a broadcast frame (which would have to be processed by all the other nodes on the LAN). 11. No it is not possible. Each LAN has its own distinct set of adapters attached to it, with each adapter having a unique LAN address....
