I am reading the book on Data Communications and Networking by Behrouz A. Forouzan
Suppose a device A on LAN 1 wants to connect to the device B on LAN 2 . Initially the bridge table is empty . When A sends frames to a bridge it will forward this frame to LAN 2 . The table will be filled with the MAC address of device A and does not know the address of device B . What happens to the frame that was sent on LAN 2 ?
Suppose the table has all details now , If a device wants to connect to a device on the same LAN , then can the frames be sent through point to point connection (I think there is one) that is between them , instead of first going to the bridge and then looking at the table , and then sending it to the destination .
What are the things I am missing here? I am confused. Please help .
