I have a doubt on the under sized frame. The standard says that the minimum frame size is 64 bytes. What will happen if we send a frame of size less than 64 to a device?
Lets take an example of ARP Request. I add a ARP packet inside a frame and make the frame size less than 64 bytes without any padding length=(ARP Packet size + Ethernet Header and Trailer) and send it to a device.
I have few questions based on the above scenario:
- Will the packet be ignored?
- Will we get a ARP reply for that packet?
- Will it get counted as under sized frame?
Any answers would be of great help.
Thanks in advance.
