Hey guys well i kind of understand what switches do with the forwarding tables.
example: Switch-A has just learned a Ethernet address of 00:0f:4b:02:63:ae is on port 4 based on forwarding table. Now, a station on port 6 with an ethernet address of lets say 00:aa:bb:cc:dd:ee sends to 00:0f:4b:02:63:ae
answer: I already know, the SRC MAC (00:aa:bb:cc:dd:ee) is checked in the forwarding table add if not in the table, update (move) if it was on a different port the DST MAC (00:0f:4b:02:63:ae) is checked in the forwarding table; not found will unicast flood to all other ports otherwise forward on that port
but now lets say same switch-A now receives a frame on port5 with an ethernet address of of 00:41:51:61:71:81 and a destination Ethernet address of 00:a2:b2:11:22:33.
now how will this switch update the forwarding table and what exactly would it do with this "frame it is receiving on port 5" will the switch do the same thing, but how ill it handle the destination
