3 The Internet Protocol

4 Internetworking Concepts
Different networks connected together

5 Physical-Transport Independence

6 IP layer Provides powerful logical abstraction Hides Physical Layer dependency Upper layer processes see a logical IP network

7 Functions of Internet Protocol
Internet Protocol (IP) provides Datagram service Phisical network independence for higher layer processing Logical address for computers on network Independence from maximum transmission unit size Fragmentation and reassembly control These topics are examined in the next several viewgraphs

8 IP Datagram Service Ip makes use of “best efforts” service
Similar to postal services Advantages Simplicity and less overhead Upper layers can build more reliable service Adequate for many networks -- LANs, frame relay

9 Need for Uniform Addresses (Logical Addresses)
Phisical networks use different addressing schemes Ethernet networks use 6-byte addresses X.25 networks use 14-digit decimal codes ARCNET networks use 1-byte addresses How 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 size Example: 1518 bytes for Etherne, 512 bytes for ARCNET, etc. Upper layers (TCP) del with message size of arbitrary length Problem: 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 technology No geography Network Addressing IP addresses (telephone numbers) Permits subnetting (like county and area codes) Gives routing capability Maps to NIC address through ARP Human Friendly Names Shows affiliations (like a normal mail address) Structured independently of IP Used 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) Ethernet 1024 1500 1518 IEEE 802.5 (4 Mbps) 4464 4508 (16 Mbps)* 1024/4096 17,756 17,800 ARCNET 508 512 X.25 128 4080 4096 *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 size File transfer, graphic applications Many wide area networks prefer smaller packet size in comparison with some applications Better use of buffer memory Smaller probability of error for each packet Smaller delay for priority packets Larger 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

15 The Internet Protocol

16 Calculating an Address Class (continued)
First Decimal Number in Dotted Decimal Address Minimum Maximum A 1 126 B 128 191 C 192 223 D 224 239 E 240 247

17 Range of Assignable Addresses
netid hostid Class Minimum Maximum A 1 126. 0.0.1 B 128.0 0.1 C .1 254 D 224. 239. N/A N/A = not applicable Why is address 127.x.x.x not assigned?

18 Software Loopback Local machne can be addressed by 127.x.x.x
“x” can be any value -- Typically, is used for local host Also 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 host An internet address with hostid of 0 refers to the network itself -- Example: -- Refers to class B network Directed broadcast addresses By convention, broadcast addresses have all 1 s in hostid field -- Example: Important exception is software derived from BSD 4.2 UNIX -- Uses all 0s broadcast Limited broadcast address Broadcast address of IP packets with this address usually do not cross router boudary Not all TCP/IP implementations support it

20 The Internet Protocol

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 address All nodes receive ARP request, but only B responds because its IP address is included in the ARP request B replies to A, with B’s physical address Assumption: requires broadcast capability on network (i.e., Ethernet, Token Ring, etc.)

23 ARP Request/Response Packet Structure
Numbers in ( ) represent bits

24 ARP Refinements: Caching
In previous example Host A uses ARP reply to build a local cache -- Cache contains <IP addr., Physical addr.> pair Host B is likely to reply to A Use ARP request to store A’s <IP addr., Psysical addr.> in cache Other host extract A’s <IP addr., Physical addr> from ARP request Machines booting on netork announce their <IP addr., Physical addr.> Other machines cache this information Also used for duplicate IP address detection

25 IP Address for Disless Nodes
Workstations store their IP addresses in local storage media How 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 – PA Destination address = broadcast Ethertype = 8035 hex RARP uses same packet structure as ARP

27 RARP Operation (continued)
Send broadcasts RARP request SENDER HA ← Sender’s physical address TARGET HA ← Sender’s physical address RARP servers respond with OPERATION TYPE ← reply TARGET IP ← Answer (requester’s IP address) DATA LINK DA ← Requester’s physical address Lssues RARP request storms Primary and backup RARP servers

28 BOOTP BOOTP makes use of UDP/IP to obtain IP addresses and other information BOOTP does not provide clients with bootstrap image It provides the name of the boot image Boot 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 addresses Otherwise, ARP tables are initialized with incorrect <IP addr., Physical addr.> mappings Symptoms of bad ARP tables are -- Users unable to access TCP/IP hosts -- Workstations and servers crashing -- Intermittent problems with applications not working Common results of duplicate IP addresses are ARP table corruption at workstations ARP table corruption at servers

30 Duplicate IP Addresses at Workstation
Step 1 Workstation initiates FTP session to server

31 Duplicate IP Addresses at Workstation (continued)
Step 2 Second 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 may Ignore the second request Overwrite the server ARP cache entry with hardware address from second workstation Get confused and crash In 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 address If 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 VAX What happens if the SUN server and VAX server also act as routers?

34 ARP Display Utilities Resolving duplicate IP address problems can be a challenging task on large networks Keeping good records of IP address assignments and hardware addresses of devices can help Use utilities to display and fix ARP cache entries -- Most UNIX systems have the arp utility arp -a arp -d hostname arp -s hostname hardware_addr Display all ARP entries in table Delete an entry from ARP table Add a new entry in ARP table. Entry is not timed out!

60 Bonus Pick an IP packet (that appeals to you!) within LANWatch and analyze it on your own. Try to identify the blank fields in the IP datagram above. Label these fields and enter the value in the fields for the IP packet you are analyzing.

61 The Internet Protocol

62 Duplicate IP Address Problem
IP addresses must be unique Most network software assumes trusted hosts Duplicate IP addresses result in Network software becoming confused, malfunctioning Routing problems -- Because routing information is encoded in IP address netid and hostid

63 Buffer Reassembly Problem
Not all IP implementations are equally robust Some IP implementations may not reassemble datagram fragments correctly Solution: Configure IP software for DF = 1 -- Problem: DF flag may not be configurable by network manager Fragmentation may be required if IP datagram traverses networks with small MTU

64 IP Trailers: 4BSD UNIX Software derived from BSD 4.2 UNIX may use alternate IP encapsulation Done for efficient memory management -- To place data information on page boundary Berkeley-style trailer encapsulation Will not interoperate with normal IP encapsulation (example: IP routers)

65 Avoiding IP Trailers On many UNIX systems, IP trailer encapsulation can be controlled by the if conf ig utility Example: ifconfig ethO -trailers ifconfig ethO ethO: flags=23<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS> inet netmask ffffOOOO broadcast

66 All O's Broadcast IP software implemented on earlier BSD 4.2 UNIX may use all O's broadcast Can cause confusion with most systems that use all 1's broadcast Use if conf ig utility to enable all 1's broadcast May not work if broadcast mechanism has been hard-coded Example: ifconfig ethO broadcast ifconfig ethO ethO: flags=23<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS> inet netmask ffffOOOO broadcast

67 The Internet Protocol

68 Using Unique Internet Addresses
If building your own private internet Decide on an IP address class -- Popular choices are class B, class C If you decide not to connect to the Internet You can select your own IP network number If you decide to connect to the Internet You should apply to Network information Center (NIC) for unique internetwork number Alternatively, 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 provides Isolation between duplicate IP addresses Security by restricting access between internal and external networks at the Application Layer Alternatively, use a private address

70 Obtaining Unique IP Network Number
To obtain Internet number to connect to the Internet, apply to Network Solutions InterNIC Registration Services 505 Huntmar Park Drive Herndon, VA USA Users wanting to connect to the MILNET must still apply to DDN Network Information Center Park Meadow Drive, Suite 200 Chantilly, VA USA See Appendix D for application form for Obtaining IP Network Number

71 IP Address Database Local management of IP addresse RARP servers can
Configuration database kept on local machine -- Often simple text files, such as /etc/hosts (UNIX) or net . cfg and config . tel, etc. (MS-DOS) RARP servers BOOTP server DHCP server (covered in Course 154) Name servers RARP servers can Simplify IP address maintenance Problems: -- Updates when data-link address changes -- RARP storms -- Single point of failure

72 The Internet Protocol

73 IP on IEEE 802 LANs Initial IP implementation on LANs was on Ethernet
Ethertype field in Ethernet header is used to indicate IP packet -- Ethertype = 800 hex for IP packets There is no Ethertype field in IEEE LANs How do you indicate Ethertype information? -- Use lEEE802.2LLC

74 IEEE 802.2 Logical Link Control
IEEE LANs use a sublayer called LLC to indicate protocol (software) addresses

75 The SNAP Protocol A special DSAP or SSAP value in IEEE field indicates that Ethertype field is in the data field This mechanism is called SubNet Access Erotocol (SNAP)

76 IP on IEEE 802.3, 802.5, and FDDI

77 IP on X.25 First octet in X.25 call request data field indicates IP protocol X.25 virtual circuit is used to transmit datagrams -- Closed after a period of inactivity -- Treated as a point-to-point circuit

78 IP on ATM ATM transmits data in fixed 53-byte cells (5 bytes header and 48 bytes data) ATM cells available on demand with low latency -- Real-time audio/video -- Multimedia applications ATM provides virtual channels with quality of service (QoS) parameters
