Refer to the exhibit. PC1 attempts to connect to File_server1 and sends an ARP request to obtain a destination MAC address. Which MAC address will PC1 receive in the ARP reply?
- the MAC address of S1
- the MAC address of the G0/0 interface on R1
- the MAC address of the G0/0 interface on R2
- the MAC address of S2
- the MAC address of File_server1
Answers Explanation & Hints:
PC1 must have a MAC address to use as a destination Layer 2 address. PC1 will send an ARP request as a broadcast and R1 will send back an ARP reply with its G0/0 interface MAC address. PC1 can then forward the packet to the MAC address of the default gateway, R1.
