    This may sound like a silly question, but when Computer A sends a message to Computer B, how does computer A know what the IP address to send for Computer B? I know that Aap looks for the Mac address to store in the switches table; however, I am confused as to how Computer A would automatically know the IP address of B. I also don't see in the Ethernet Frame where the IP address of the destination IP address would be stored.
