       arping - send ARP REQUEST to a neighbour host

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

       Ping destination on device interface by ARP packets, using  source  ad‐
       dress source.

       -A     The  same	 as  -U, but ARP REPLY packets used instead of ARP RE‐

       -b     Send only MAC level  broadcasts.	Normally  arping  starts  from
	      sending broadcast, and switch to unicast after reply received.

       Stop after sending count ARP REQUEST
	      packets.	With  deadline	[arping(8)]  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.

       Name of network device where to send ARP REQUEST packets.

       -h     Print help page and exit.

       -q     Quiet output. Nothing is displayed.

       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	desti‐

	      · 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.

       Specify a timeout, in seconds, before
	      arping exits regardless of how many packets have	been  sent  or
	      received.	 In  this  case arping does not stop after count [arp‐
	      ing(8)] packet are sent, it  waits  either  for  deadline	 [arp‐
	      ing(8)] expire or until count [arping(8)] probes are answered.

       arping requires CAP_NET_RAW capability to be executed. It is not recom‐
       mended 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
