From mt windows machine I can ping a LINUX machine but there is no arp entry for the same LINUX on my windows.
How is it possible and what can I do to add the arp entry as I need it.

Could you please use the following code and let us know if that helps you.

arp -sip_addressmac_address

  1. Retrieve the IP address and MAC address of the device that requires the ARP entry.
    • From Windows Server command prompt, run ipconfig/all command.
    • From Solaris and Linux command prompt, run ifconfig -a command.
  2. From the Navigation pane, choose Config > Networking.
  3. In the Advanced drop-down list, select ARP.
  4. Click the Add button. A new row appears in the Static ARP Entries table.
  5. Specify the IP address and MAC address of the device, then click Save.
  6. If the entry is for a misconfigured client, clear the client's ARP table. For ARP to be efficient, each computer caches IP-to-MAC address mappings to eliminate repetitive ARP broadcast requests. There are various public scripts that use the arp command to do the trick.
  7. From any network computer, test that the entry is working. From a command prompt, run arp -a command.

Where ip_address specifies of a local TCP/IP node.
mac address defines Media Access Control address for a for a network adapter installed and used on the local TCP/IP node.

Also this will work until the next reboot for system.
