Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) on Sx500 Series Stackable Switches

Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is a telecommunication protocol that operates at the link layer and is in charge of resolving network addresses (IP addresses) into link layer addresses (MAC addresses). The switch maintains an ARP table with all the MAC addresses that are connected to the same subnetwork. When a switch sends a packet, it checks the ARP table to find the MAC address of the destination device. ARP ensures that a data packets reaches its phisycal destination. The Sx500 Series Stackable Switches offer different features to configure ARP via the Graphical User Interface (GUI). This document offers the different ARP configurations available on the Sx500 Series Stackable Switches.
