arping - send ARP REQUEST to a neighbour host
arping [ -AbDfhqUV] [ -c count] [ -w deadline] [ -s source] -I interface destination
Ping destination on device interface by ARP packets, using source address source.
-A The same as -U, but ARP REPLY packets used instead of ARP REQUEST.
-b Send only MAC level broadcasts. Normally arping starts from sending broadcast, and
switch to unicast after reply received.
Stop after sending count ARP REQUEST packets. With deadline option, arping waits
for count ARP REPLY packets, until the timeout expires.
-D Duplicate address detection mode (DAD). See RFC2131, 4.4.1. Returns 0, if DAD suc-
ceeded i.e. no replies are received
-f Finish after the first reply confirming that target is alive.
Name of network device where to send ARP REQUEST packets. This option is required.
-h Print help page and exit.
-q Quiet output. Nothing is displayed.
IP source address to use in ARP packets. If this option is absent, source address
o In DAD mode (with option -D) set to 0.0.0.0.
o In Unsolicited ARP mode (with options -U or -A) set to destination.
o Otherwise, it is calculated from routing tables.
-U Unsolicited ARP mode to update neighbours' ARP caches. No replies are expected.
-V Print version of the program and exit.
Specify a timeout, in seconds, before arping exits regardless of how many packets
have been sent or received. In this case arping does not stop after count packet
are sent, it waits either for deadline expire or until count probes are answered.
ping(8), clockdiff(8), tracepath(8).
arping was written by Alexey Kuznetsov <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
arping requires CAP_NET_RAWIO capability to be executed. It is not recommended to be used
as set-uid root, because it allows user to modify ARP caches of neighbour hosts.
arping is part of iputils package and the latest versions are available in source form
for anonymous ftp ftp://ftp.inr.ac.ru/ip-routing/iputils-current.tar.gz.
