farpd - ARP reply daemon
farpd [-d] [-i interface] [net ...]
farpd replies to any ARP request for an IP address matching the specified
destination net with the hardware MAC address of the specified interface,
but only after determining if another host already claims it.
Any IP address claimed by farpd is eventually forgotten after a period of
inactivity or after a hard timeout, and is relinquished if the real owner
This enables a single host to claim all unassigned addresses on a LAN for
network monitoring or simulation.
farpd exits on an interrupt or termination signal.
Note: The program name farpd has been changed in Debian GNU/Linux from
the original name (arpd) to avoid name clash with other ARP daemons.
The options are as follows:
-d Do not daemonize, and enable verbose debugging messages.
Listen on interface. If unspecified, farpd searches the system
interface list for the lowest numbered, configured ‘‘up’’
interface (excluding loopback).
net The IP address or network (specified in CIDR notation) or IP
address ranges to claim (e.g. ‘‘10.0.0.3’’, ‘‘10.0.0.0/16’’ or
‘‘10.0.0.5-10.0.0.15’’). If unspecified, farpd will attempt to
claim any IP address it sees an ARP request for. Mutiple
addresses may be specified.
