I have a question, and I have no idea where it belongs to.
To cut it short - the question is about networking (specifics about the ARP protocol), but the problem is that I have no idea where it belongs too. When I was previously posting similar questions on Stack Overflow, people were not really happy regarding them. Super User and Server Fault does not look applicable, and there is no such site as Networking.
What is the right solution?
Here is a question:
In the DHCP protocol, the client is submitting his MAC-address to a DHCP server in order to get an IP address. On the opposite, in the ARP protocol, the client is telling the IP address of the device and is asking who knows the device's MAC address. Why exactly do I need to know the MAC address of the device?
