Apple Address Resolution Protocol

<networking> (AARP) Apple's system to allow AppleTalk protocol to work over networks other than LocalTalk, such as Ethernet or Token Ring. AppleTalk nodes announce their presence to the network so that other nodes can address messages to them. AARP maps between AppleTalk addresses and other schemes. It is actually a general address mapping protocol that can be used to map between addresses at any protocol level.
