A shell tool that sends ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) queries to specified targets
arp-scan is engineered in such a way that it allows users to change any part of the outgoing ARP packets, in order to examine non-standard ARP packets. It is comprised of arp-fingerprint, a small command-line tool that allows a system to be fingerprinted.
arp-scan is a multi-platform software that has been successfully tested on Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, DragonflyBSD, Solaris, and Mac OS X operating systems.

What's New in This Release:
- Updated IEEE OUI and IAB MAC/Vendor files. There are now 18157 OUI entries and 4414 IAB entries.
- Use autoconf 2.69 and automake 1.11 to add support for ARM 64-bit CPUs.
- Use libpcap functions to obtain the interace IP address and send the ARP packet, instead of using our own link-layer specific functions. The only link-layer specific function that we still need is get_hardware_address() to obtain the interface MAC address. This means we now require libpcap 0.9.3 or later.
- Added support for Dragonfly BSD.
