Details

ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) is a protocol to lookup the link layer address of an internet / network layer address.
It translates a layer-3 address into a layer-2 address and is mainly used to lookup the MAC address of an IPv4 address.

In IPv6 networks NDP does a similar job. The reverse of ARP is the obsolete RARP protocol.

FRITZ!OS

ARP is one of the sources to fill the MAC address list maintained by multid or rextd.

Kernel

FRITZ!OS is based on Linux which maintains an ARP cache. It could be accessed by:

root@fritz1:/var/mod/root# cat /proc/net/arp

IP address       HW type     Flags       HW address            Mask     Device

Shell

A tool to list and manipulate the ARP cache is the arp command:

root@fritz1:/var/mod/root# arp -a
