Generate ARP traffic on a Windows machine
During a project I had to generate some ARP traffic
for research reasons. This page should be a very brief explanation
and note about the simple script which I used.
Maybe someone is interested in my keep-it-simple-solution and has
some use for it.
ARP (Address Resolution
Protocol) is used to translate between IP (logical) and MAC
(physical) addresses. Communication between OSI layer 2 and 3 is
done with this protocol.
Batch script to generate ARP traffic
The idea behind this script is to delete the entry from the local
arp table where the MAC-IP address combinations are cached and force
a new request by sending a ping packet to a host on the network.
With this approach no low level programming is necessary.
-- this ip should exist and respond to pings
-- no need to edit below
arp -d %gw%
echo delete arp-table entry.
ping -n 1 %gw%
echo pinging host.
