ToS—The Type of Service (ToS) field is an 8-bit field that provides the capability to define the preferred service treatment. The ToS field might not be used by every hardware or software platform. page 45 Understanding the Network A Practical Guide to Internetworking • • • • • • • • • • • Total Length—This field describes the total size of the datagram, including both the IP header and the ULP data.

All application programs are included at this layer (including ones that do not require any communication services), and each application must employ its own protocol to communicate with the Lower-Layer Protocols (LLPs).

This being the case, a mechanism needs to exist for translating Layer 3 network addresses to Layer 2 transport addresses. The ARP protocol was developed to perform these translations for IP. When IP assembles a datagram, it takes the destination address provided by the ULP and performs a lookup in the host's route table to determine if the destination is local or remote to itself.
