7 Functions of Internet Protocol Internet Protocol (IP) providesDatagram servicePhisical network independence for higher layer processingLogical address for computers on networkIndependence from maximum transmission unit sizeFragmentation and reassembly controlThese topics are examined in the next several viewgraphs
8 IP Datagram Service Ip makes use of “best efforts” service Similar to postal servicesAdvantagesSimplicity and less overheadUpper layers can build more reliable serviceAdequate for many networks-- LANs, frame relay
9 Need for Uniform Addresses (Logical Addresses) Phisical networks use different addressing schemesEthernet networks use 6-byte addressesX.25 networks use 14-digit decimal codesARCNET networks use 1-byte addressesHow should nodes on a logical network be identified?Solution: Use a logical address to provide a uniform way of addressing all network nodes rregardless of their physical network connections
10 Message Size Limitations Physical networks support different maximum frame sizeExample: 1518 bytes for Etherne, 512 bytes for ARCNET, etc.Upper layers (TCP) del with message size of arbitrary lengthProblem: How do you send arbitrarily long messages to networks with packet-size constraints?A solution: datagrams, fragmentation, and reassembly
11 Names and Addresses LAN Addressing NIC addresses (like National Insurance Number)Broadcast technologyNo geographyNetwork AddressingIP addresses (telephone numbers)Permits subnetting (like county and area codes)Gives routing capabilityMaps to NIC address through ARPHuman Friendly NamesShows affiliations (like a normal mail address)Structured independently of IPUsed to identify people, computers, networks, organistations.Maps to IP through DNS
12 Typical MTU Size Network Typical frame size (bytes) MTU (bytes) Maximum frame size (bytes)Ethernet102415001518IEEE 802.5(4 Mbps)44644508(16 Mbps)*1024/409617,75617,800ARCNET508512X.2512840804096*Assuming a token-holding time of 9 ms.MTU = maximum transmission unit
13 Fragmentation and Reassembly Control Many applications on hosts tend to use large message sizeFile transfer, graphic applicationsMany wide area networks prefer smaller packet size in comparison with some applicationsBetter use of buffer memorySmaller probability of error for each packetSmaller delay for priority packetsLarger packet size in networks (such as LANs) can result in more efficient data transfer
14 Freagmentation and Reassembly Control (continued) What would happen to packets going from Host B to Host A?Note: TCP messages can be fragmented by sender

18 Software Loopback Local machne can be addressed by 127.x.x.x “x” can be any value-- Typically, is used for local hostAlso referred to software loopback test-- Packets never transmitted-- Packets copied from transmit buffer to receive buffer
19 Hostid and Broadcast Addresses Hostid of 0 is never assigned to an individual hostAn internet address with hostid of 0 refers to the network itself-- Example:-- Refers to class B networkDirected broadcast addressesBy convention, broadcast addresses have all 1 s in hostid field-- Example:Important exception is software derived from BSD 4.2 UNIX-- Uses all 0s broadcastLimited broadcast addressBroadcast address ofIP packets with this address usually do not cross router boudaryNot all TCP/IP implementations support it
21 The Problem: Need for Address Resolution How does a host know about another host’s physical address?Hard code knowledge of physical addresses?Can you logical (IP address) to determine physical address?-- Address resolution protocols
22 Dynamic Address Resolution Protocol Mechanism Host A broadcasts ARP request on network containing B’s IP addressAll nodes receive ARP request, but only B responds because its IPaddress is included in the ARP requestB replies to A, with B’s physical addressAssumption: requires broadcast capability on network (i.e.,Ethernet, Token Ring, etc.)
24 ARP Refinements: Caching In previous exampleHost A uses ARP reply to build a local cache-- Cache contains <IP addr., Physical addr.> pairHost B is likely to reply to AUse ARP request to store A’s <IP addr., Psysical addr.> in cacheOther host extract A’s <IP addr., Physical addr> from ARP requestMachines booting on netork announce their <IP addr., Physical addr.>Other machines cache this informationAlso used for duplicate IP address detection
25 IP Address for Disless Nodes Workstations store their IP addresses in local storage mediaHow do diskless workstations store their IP addresses?A solution: use Reverse ARP (RARP)-- Keep <IP addr., Physical addr.? Bindings on RARP server-- Potential for simplifying IP adress administration?
26 RARP Operation RARP uses same packet structure as ARP Sender address – PADestination address = broadcastEthertype = 8035 hexRARP uses same packet structure as ARP
27 RARP Operation (continued) Send broadcasts RARP requestSENDER HA ← Sender’s physical addressTARGET HA ← Sender’s physical addressRARP servers respond withOPERATION TYPE ← replyTARGET IP ← Answer (requester’s IP address)DATA LINK DA ← Requester’s physical addressLssuesRARP request stormsPrimary and backup RARP servers
28 BOOTPBOOTP makes use of UDP/IP to obtain IP addresses and other informationBOOTP does not provide clients with bootstrap imageIt provides the name of the boot imageBoot image is transferred using Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP)To forward BOOTP requests across routers, routers must be configured with rekay agents to foeward BOOTP packets
29 Troubleshooting Duplicate IP Addresses and ARP Tables Nodes on an IP network must have unique IP addressesOtherwise, ARP tables are initialized with incorrect <IP addr., Physical addr.> mappingsSymptoms of bad ARP tables are-- Users unable to access TCP/IP hosts-- Workstations and servers crashing-- Intermittent problems with applications not workingCommon results of duplicate IP addresses areARP table corruption at workstationsARP table corruption at servers
30 Duplicate IP Addresses at Workstation Step 1Workstation initiates FTP session to server
31 Duplicate IP Addresses at Workstation (continued) Step 2Second workstation with duplicate IP address initiates FTP session to server
32 Duplicate IP Addresses at Workstation (continued) If the server receives a TCP/IP connection request from a second workstation with a duplicate IP address, the TCP/IP software mayIgnore the second requestOverwrite the server ARP cache entry with hardware address from second workstationGet confused and crashIn either of the above choices, one or both of the workstations with the duplicate IP address will have connection problems
33 Duplicate IP Addresses at the Server Workstation tries to connect to VAX at IP addressIf the SUN server at duplicate IP address returns an ARP reply faster than the VAX, the workstation connects to the SUN server instead of the VAXWhat happens if the SUN server and VAX server also act as routers?
34 ARP Display UtilitiesResolving duplicate IP address problems can be a challenging task on large networksKeeping good records of IP address assignments and hardware addresses of devices can helpUse utilities to display and fix ARP cache entries-- Most UNIX systems have the arp utilityarp -aarp -d hostnamearp -s hostname hardware_addrDisplay all ARP entries in tableDelete an entry from ARP tableAdd a new entry in ARP table. Entry is nottimed out!

62 Duplicate IP Address Problem IP addresses must be uniqueMost network software assumes trusted hostsDuplicate IP addresses result inNetwork software becoming confused, malfunctioningRouting problems-- Because routing information is encoded in IP address netid and hostid
63 Buffer Reassembly Problem Not all IP implementations are equally robustSome IP implementations may not reassemble datagram fragments correctlySolution: Configure IP software for DF = 1-- Problem:DF flag may not be configurable by network managerFragmentation may be required if IP datagram traverses networks with small MTU
64 IP Trailers: 4BSD UNIXSoftware derived from BSD 4.2 UNIX may use alternate IP encapsulationDone for efficient memory management-- To place data information on page boundaryBerkeley-style trailer encapsulationWill not interoperate with normal IP encapsulation (example: IP routers)
65 Avoiding IP TrailersOn many UNIX systems, IP trailer encapsulation can be controlled by the if conf ig utilityExample:ifconfig ethO -trailersifconfig ethOethO: flags=23<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS>inet netmask ffffOOOO broadcast
66 All O's BroadcastIP software implemented on earlier BSD 4.2 UNIX may use all O's broadcastCan cause confusion with most systems that use all 1's broadcastUse if conf ig utility to enable all 1's broadcastMay not work if broadcast mechanism has been hard-codedExample:ifconfig ethO broadcastifconfig ethOethO: flags=23<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS>inet netmask ffffOOOO broadcast
68 Using Unique Internet Addresses If building your own private internetDecide on an IP address class-- Popular choices are class B, class CIf you decide not to connect to the InternetYou can select your own IP network numberIf you decide to connect to the InternetYou should apply to Network information Center (NIC) for unique internetwork numberAlternatively, use IP address translation devices such as application-level gateways-- Application-level gateways also can be used to implement-- firewalls for enhancing security-- Can be used to avoid duplicate IP address conflicts
69 Application-Level Security Gateway (Firewall) Application-level firewall providesIsolation between duplicate IP addressesSecurity by restricting access between internal and external networks at the Application LayerAlternatively, use a private address
