Details

RARP (Reverse Address Resolution Protocol) is a protocol to lookup the internet / network layer address of a link layer
address. It is the reverse of the ARP protocol and translates a layer-2 address into a layer-3 address
It was mainly used to lookup the IPv4 address of a MAC address and was obsoleted by the BOOTP and DHCP protocols.

In IPv6 networks IND does a similar job.

FRITZ!OS

While RARP is supported by some Shared-Libraries with networking tools there does not seem to be any use in FRITZ!OS.

Kernel

FRITZ!OS is based on Linux which could maintain a RARP table. It could be accessed by:

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

cat: can't open '/proc/net/rarp': No such file or directory

Shell

A tool to list and manipulate the RARP table is the rarp command, which is not installed in FRITZ!OS.

See the rarp(8) man page.
