A host is trying to send a packet to a device on a remote LAN segment, but there are currently no mappings in the ARP cache. How will the device obtain a destination MAC address?

A host is trying to send a packet to a device on a remote LAN segment, but there are currently no mappings in the ARP cache. How will the device obtain a destination MAC address?

  • It will send an ARP request for the MAC address of the destination device.
  • It will send the frame with a broadcast MAC address.
  • It will send the frame and use the device MAC address as the destination.
  • It will send an ARP request for the MAC address of the default gateway.
  • It will send an ARP request to the DNS server for the destination MAC address.
