Reverse Address Resolution Protocol

<networking, protocol> (RARP) A protocol defined in RFC 903 which provides the reverse function of ARP.

RARP maps a hardware address (MAC address) to an Internet address. It is used primarily by diskless nodes, when they first initialise, to find their Internet address.
