  1. Anybody with Networking Knowledge - I need some help...

    I'm currently studying for a Cisco Networking Course and for my coursework I have mostly completed apart from some odd questions that I could not find the answers.

    Any help appreciated for the following related questions:

    1a. What kind of primitives does Internet Protocol Version 4 (Ipv4) have and Why?

    1b. Suppose a network layer can directlyl contact with other network layer. What kind of primitives can appear?

    1c. Why does Ipv6 not contain a protocol field?

    I have already tried researching the answers :confused: but i would like to know if anybody with the appropriate knowledge can help. :(

    From Internet Protocol Specification, we can see that
    Code:
    [quote]
    A summary of the contents of the internet header follows: 
    
       +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ 
       |Version|  IHL  |Type of Service|          Total Length         | 
       +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ 
       |         Identification        |Flags|      Fragment Offset    | 
       +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ 
       |  Time to Live |    Protocol   |         Header Checksum       | 
       +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ 
       |                       Source Address                          | 
       +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ 
       |                    Destination Address                        | 
       +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ 
       |                    Options                    |    Padding    | 
       +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ 
    [/quote]
    
    note: IHL = Internet Header Length


    What does Internet Protocol, Version 6 (IPv6) Specification say, then?

    Supra: I don't think he's doing CCNA at all. Although the earlier CCNA chapters introduces certain protocols and their frame headers etc, Cisco has never stressed their importance. The term 'primitives' was NEVER used during the CCNA course (I can say that with 90% confidence....), and I have no clue what the hell a primitive is supposed to be.
