Protocols at multiple levels are required for this answer, so when you say 'the address', 'the
response', and 'the information' you'll need to specify what kind of addresses, for which
protocol, you're meaning, and what the responses involve.
Do your points 1 and 5 mean to say UDP, or ARP?

When you provide the information I've suggested, above, your answer will easily double in size.
But marks are not awarded for the size of the answer, but its correctness, and the difficulty in
answering the question.
