RARP(8)		      Linux System Administrator's Manual	       RARP(8)

       rarp - manipulate the system RARP table

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

       This program is obsolete.  From version 2.3, the Linux kernel no longer
       contains	 RARP  support.	  For	a   replacement	  RARP	 daemon,   see

       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.

       -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


       --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.

       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
       network administrator.
