comment What is the exact use of a MAC address?
@ultrasawblade, To be pendantic, the terms are largely debated so "packets" and "frames" can mean any of either. You must always say which packet and which frame.

comment What is the exact use of a MAC address?
@BillMichell, Wow this is amazing! Just some quick questions: 1) What do you mean by "it might not use MAC addresses but IP traffic from the internet could still flow across it"? Do you mean that we build another "IP-like" layer below MAC layer? and 2) Seriously this is where it gets interesting, "most Ethernet hardware could carry the new kind of traffic without modification", please elaborate exactly what kind of traffic are you describing?

@Chris, Regarding "Well, you get lots of people from surrounding villages visiting your town following the signs and wondering why they're not in London.", how would they know? Assuming I'm evil Bob and I've phished London, how would they know?

comment Must TCP use IP?
@netvope, That has nothing to do with IP does it? TCP's checksum is for its contents, regardless of what the contents is.

@Joey, But it's more standard to use only stdin and stdout and ignore the file arguments.

@Joey, Why do you say that type is useless? It's very useful for piping isn't it?
