       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 uni
              cast after reply received.

       -c count
              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 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

               In  Unsolicited  ARP mode (with options -U or -A)
                set to destination.

               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.


       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

iputils-021109            09  2002                ARPING(8)
