  • IP Traffic vs non-IP Traffic

    Hi,

    I'm looking for information about IP Traffic and non-IP Traffic. The behavior, similarities, differences, examples etc2..

    There's not much information that I can found on google

    This is one of them
    http://volnet.utk.edu/cutover/spin/ip.html

    Correct me if I'm wrong. Based on this article, I assume that IPX and AppleTalk traffic are examples of non-IP traffic rite? How about non-IP traffic? How to identify which traffic is IP traffic and which one is not?

    Is it true that all IP traffic do have an IP Address? And if non-IP traffic doesn't have IP Address, how do we manage/control non-IP traffic in our firewall or any network devices?

    use wireshark to capture some packets on your network (obtain permission first!) and start to read the packet headers, things like that..


    also, try something like Sam's Teach Yourself TCP in 21 days - that can be helpful

      The Internet is only IP traffic so that is the only type of traffic the firewalls need to inspect. If you are running another protocol then it can only be used within your organization and all the devices involved will be configured accordingly. But most networks use TCP/IP for their internal network.
