[email protected]:~# arping --help ARPing 2.23, by Thomas Habets <[email protected]> usage: arping [ -0aAbdDeFpPqrRuUvzZ ] [ -w <sec> ] [ -W <sec> ] [ -S <host/ip> ] [ -T <host/ip ] [ -s <MAC> ] [ -t <MAC> ] [ -c <count> ] [ -C <count> ] [ -i <interface> ] [ -m <type> ] [ -g <group> ] [ -V <vlan> ] [ -Q <priority> ] <host/ip/MAC | -B> Options: -0 Use this option to ping with source IP address 0.0.0.0. Use this when you haven't configured your interface yet. Note that this may get the MAC-ping unanswered. This is an alias for -S 0.0.0.0. -a Audiable ping. -A Only count addresses matching requested address (This *WILL* break most things you do. Only useful if you are arpinging many hosts at once. See arping-scan-net.sh for an example). -b Like -0 but source broadcast source address (255.255.255.255). Note that this may get the arping unanswered since it's not nor- mal behavior for a host. -B Use instead of host if you want to address 255.255.255.255. -c count Only send count requests. -C count Only wait for this many replies, regardless of -c and -w. -d Find duplicate replies. Exit with 1 if there are answers from two different MAC addresses. -D Display answers as exclamation points and missing packets as dots. -e Like -a but beep when there is no reply. -F Don't try to be smart about the interface name. (even if this switch is not given, -i overrides smartness) -g group setgid() to this group instead of the nobody group. -h Displays a help message and exits. -i interface Use the specified interface. -m type Type of timestamp to use for incoming packets. Use -vv when pinging to list available ones. -q Does not display messages, except error messages. -Q pri 802.1p priority to set. Should be used with 802.1Q (-V). Defaults to 0. -r Raw output: only the MAC/IP address is displayed for each reply. -R Raw output: Like -r but shows "the other one", can be combined with -r. -s MAC Set source MAC address. You may need to use -p with this. -S IP Like -b and -0 but with set source address. Note that this may get the arping unanswered if the target does not have routing to the IP. If you don't own the IP you are using, you may need to turn on promiscious mode on the interface (with -p). With this switch you can find out what IP-address a host has without tak- ing an IP-address yourself. -t MAC Set target MAC address to use when pinging IP address. -T IP Use -T as target address when pinging MACs that won't respond to a broadcast ping but perhaps to a directed broadcast. Example: To check the address of MAC-A, use knowledge of MAC-B and IP-B. $ arping -S <IP-B> -s <MAC-B> -p <MAC-A> -p Turn on promiscious mode on interface, use this if you don't "own" the MAC address you are using. -P Send ARP replies instead of requests. Useful with -U. -u Show index=received/sent instead of just index=received when pinging MACs. -U Send unsolicited ARP. -v Verbose output. Use twice for more messages. -V num 802.1Q tag to add. Defaults to no VLAN tag. -w sec Specify a timeout before ping exits regardless of how many packets have been sent or received. -W sec Time to wait between pings. -z Enable seccomp -Z Disable seccomp (default) Report bugs to: [email protected] Arping home page: <http://www.habets.pp.se/synscan/> Development repo: http://github.com/ThomasHabets/arping
