What is ARP and RARP function?

ARP - Address resolution protocol (ARP) enables the packaging of IP data into ethernet packages. It is the system and messaging protocol that is used to find the ethernet (hardware) address from a specific IP number. Without this protocol, the ethernet package could not be generated from the IP package, because the ethernet address could not be determined RARP - Reverse address resolution protocol (RARP) is used to allow a computer without a local permanent data storage media to determine its IP address from its ethernet address.

How is ARP reply message different from that of ARP request message?

An ARP request is a broadcast Ethernet packet, that is, a packet sent onto the local physical network that all attached devices will receive. A device sends an ARP request to make the query "what is the MAC address (a.k.a. hardware address, link layer address, etc.) of this IP address (a.k.a Layer 3 address, logical network address, etc.)?" An ARP reply is an unicast Ethernet packet, sent from the device that currently owns the specified IP address, back to the device which sent the ARP request. That is, no other device will receive this packet. The ARP reply answers the requester's question, saying "IP address x.x.x.x is associated with MAC address xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx".
