ADDRESS RESOLUTION WITH CLOSED-FORM COMPUTATION

For networks use reliable addressing, it is possible to select an address that creates closed-form address resolution possible. A resolver is used to compute a mathematical operation that maps an IP address to a machine address.

 

 When a device connects to a network that uses configurable address, the local network administrator must select a hardware address as well as an IP address. The two values can be selected to create address resolution trivial. Let's take an example.

EXAMPLE:

 

 Consider a configurable network number:

220.123.5.0/22

The IP address of first receiver = 220.123.5.1

Hardware Address = 1

The IP address of second receiver = 220.123.5.2

Hardware Address = 2

The IP address of router = 220.123.5.102

Hardware Address = 102

A simple Boolean 'and' operation can calculate the computer's hardware address.

Hardware Address = ip_address & 0xff
