A router receives an incoming packet and determines that the destination host is located on a LAN directly attached to one of the router interfaces. Which destination address will the router use to encapsulate the Ethernet frame when forwarding the packet?
- MAC address of the SVI on the switch
- MAC address of the default gateway of the LAN
- MAC address of the interface of the connected router
- MAC address of the destination host
Explanation: When a router encapsulates the frame to forward a packet out an Ethernet interface, it includes a destination MAC address. When the destination host is on the same local network as the router interface, the router will use the MAC address of the host as the destination MAC address of the Ethernet frame.
