    arping

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           arping  [  -AbDfhqUV]   [  -c  count]  [ -w deadline]  [ -s source]  -I
           interface destination
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Ping destination on device  interface  by  ARP  packets,  using  source
           address source.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -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.
    
           -c count
                  Stop  after  sending  count  ARP  REQUEST packets. With deadline
                  option, instead wait for count ARP REPLY packets, or  until  the
                  timeout expires.
    
           -D     Duplicate  address  detection  mode  (DAD).  See RFC2131, 4.4.1.
                  Returns 0, if DAD succeeded i.e. no replies are received
    
           -f     Finish after the first reply confirming that target is alive.
    
           -I interface
                  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.
    
           -s source
                  IP  source  address  to  use  in ARP packets.  If this option is
                  absent, source address is:
    
                  ? In DAD mode (with option -D) set to 0.0.0.0.
    
                  ? In Unsolicited ARP mode (with options -U or -A) set to  desti-
                    nation.
    
                  ? 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.
    
           -w deadline
                  Specify a timeout, in seconds, before arping exits regardless of
    
           ARP caches of neighbour hosts.
