Matt would like to determine all of the IP addresses assigned to active interfaces on his local system. What command can he use to determine this information?
D. Address Resolution Protocol(ARP)
Correct Answer: C
The ipconfig command (on Windows) and ifconfig command (on Linux) return information about the network interfaces on a device, including all assigned IP addresses, making it our correct answer here. The netstat command is used to display active network connections, so that is incorrect. The netcat command is used to send traffic to a network socket, making it another incorrect answer. The arp command is used to look up MAC addresses with the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), so it is not what we are looking for either.
