    Command:

    rarp

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           rarp [-V] [--version] [-h] [--help]
           rarp -a
           rarp [-v] -d hostname ...
           rarp [-v] [-t type] -s hostname hw_addr
    
    
    

    NOTE

           This program is obsolete.  From version 2.3, the Linux kernel no longer
           contains  RARP  support.   For   a   replacement   RARP   daemon,   see
           ftp://ftp.dementia.org/pub/net-tools
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Rarp  manipulates the kernel's RARP table in various ways.  The primary
           options are clearing an address mapping entry and manually  setting  up
           one.   For  debugging purposes, the rarp program also allows a complete
           dump of the RARP table.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -V     Display the version of RARP in use.
    
           -v     Tell the user what is going on by being verbose.
    
           -t type
                  When setting or reading the RARP table, this optional  parameter
                  tells  rarp  which  class  of  entries it should check for.  The
                  default value of this parameter is  ether  (i.e.  hardware  code
                  0x01  for  IEEE  802.3  10Mbps  Ethernet  .   Other values might
                  include network technologies such as AX.25  (ax25)  and  NET/ROM
                  (netrom).
    
           -a
    
           --list Lists the entries in the RARP table.
    
           -d hostname
    
           --delete hostname
                  Remove all RARP entries for the specified host.
    
           -s hostname hw_addr
    
           --set hostname hw_addr
                  Create a RARP address mapping entry for host hostname with hard-
                  ware address set to hw_addr.  The format of the hardware address
                  is dependent on the hardware class, but for most classes one can
                  assume that the usual presentation can be used.  For the  Ether-
                  net  class, this is 6 bytes in hexadecimal, separated by colons.
    
    
    

    WARNING

           Some systems (notably older Suns) assume that the host  replying  to  a
           RARP query can also provide other remote boot services. Therefore never
           gratuitously add rarp entries unless you wish to meet the wrath of  the
