Text book Questions Chapter 6—Questions R17, Chapter 8—Questions R1, R3, R29 R17. What is the difference between a permanent address and a care-of address? Who assigns a care-of address?

One of the keys is known to both receiver and sender, or in other word, to the whole world, while the other key is known only by sender. That’s the major difference between the two systems.
R29. Stateful packet filters maintain two data structures. Name them and briefly describe what they do. Stateful and Stateless IP .. There are several advantages to using a static IP filter. It has a combination of low overhead and high throughput. Stateless IP filters are very inexpensive, and many are free. They are included with router configuration software or are included with most Open Source operating systems. Being that a...
