Manual Decoding Of Ethernet Packets


As you know, an Ethernet packet contains:
·    An Ethernet frame header,
·    An IP header,
·    A Transport Layer header (TCP or UDP), and
·    Some user-level data.

Suppose that an Ethernet packet is given and its hexadecimal dump is shown as below, where the Ethernet preamble and the Ethernet checksum trailer have been removed. Manually decode this Ethernet packet, and determine the values of the fields.

Hexadecimal dump of the packet:
00e0 f726 3fe9 0800 2086 354b 0800
4500 0028
08b9 4000
ff06 999a

9005 0017
7214 f115
9431 1028
5010 2238
1c80 0000

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
