ArpMonitor will log any ARP request to and from your machine or network.
Version: 0.04ArpMonitor will log any ARP request to and from your machine or network. It's built for monitoring switches or bridges.
Operating System: Linux
If you would like to monitor your network bus, or entire network ( if you dont use a switch or something like that ), just do a ifconfig PROMISC, to set the promiscuous mode of your network interface, and arpmonitor will automagically get all the traffic.
I did arpmonitor to help me in a research, in 1998, about arp packets, delays between switches ports and so on.
NOTE: some var name and code was stolen from neped. since I didn`t suceed to contact the author, they are here...
What's New in This Release:
· Added promisc mode setting ( to use instead ifconfig promisc ), fixed some syslog errors, signal handling , log to syslog or stderr, command line options (see USAGE), network code cleanup.
