NAME

       mac-vendor - Ethernet vendor file for arp-scan

SYNOPSIS

       mac-vendor.txt

DESCRIPTION

       The  mac-vendor.txt contains Ethernet MAC to vendor string mappings for
       arp-scan.  It is used in addition to the IEEE OUI and IAB  listings  in
       ieee-oui.txt  and ieee-iab.txt.  It is for MAC-vendor mappings that are
       not covered by the IEEE manufacturer listings.

       Each line in the mac-vendor.txt file contains a MAC-vendor  mapping  in
       the form:

       <MAC-Prefix><TAB><Vendor>

       Where  <MAC-Prefix>  is  the  prefix  of  the  MAC  address in hex, and
       <Vendor> is the name of the vendor.  The prefix can be  of  any  length
       from  two  hex digits (one octet) to twelve hex digits (six octets, the
       entire Ethernet hardware address).  The alphabetic hex characters [A-F]
       must be entered in upper case.

       For example:
       012345    would match 01:23:45:xx:xx:xx, where xx represents any value;
       0123456   would match 01:23:45:6x:xx:xx; and
       01234567  would match 01:23:45:67:xx:xx.

       Blank lines and lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

       The  order  of  entries  in  the  file is not important.  arp-scan will
       attempt to match larger prefixes before trying to match  smaller  ones,
       and will stop at the first match.
