ARP(8)			  BSD System Manager's Manual			ARP(8)

     arp — address resolution display and control

     arp hostname
     arp -a
     arp -d hostname
     arp -s hostname ether_addr [temp] [pub]
     arp -f filename

     The arp program displays and modifies the Internet-to-Ethernet address
     translation tables used by the address resolution protocol (arp(4)).
     With no flags, the program displays the current ARP entry for hostname.
     The host may be specified by name or by number, using Internet dot nota‐

     Available options:

     -a	     The program displays all of the current ARP entries.

     -d	     A super-user may delete an entry for the host called hostname
	     with the -d flag.

     -s hostname ether_addr
	     Create an ARP entry for the host called hostname with the Ether‐
	     net address ether_addr.  The Ethernet address is given as six hex
	     bytes separated by colons.	 The entry will be permanent unless
	     the word temp is given in the command.  If the word pub is given,
	     the entry will be "published"; i.e., this system will act as an
	     ARP server, responding to requests for hostname even though the
	     host address is not its own.

     -f	     Causes the file filename to be read and multiple entries to be
	     set in the ARP tables.  Entries in the file should be of the form

		   hostname ether_addr [temp] [pub]

	     with argument meanings as given above.

     inet(3), arp(4), ifconfig(8)

     The arp command appeared in 4.3BSD.
