    How can I get arpwatch to run and monitor an interface with no IP address?  I don't see any switches for such an option.   Arpwatch errors out with "arpwatch: bad interface eth0: eth0: no IPv4 address assigned.  This interface is on a SPAN port and has no IP address on it.

    rrhoads:

    It appears that you are correct that this network application does not support stealth mode (i.e. no binding IPv4 Address) for the  NIC to monitor.

    The NST WUI does support a similar method for arp scanning/monitoring that you may want to consider using the Arp Scan Monitor…

    From the NST Menu:

    Network => Monitors => Arp Scan Monitor

    -- RWH
