A couple weeks ago, there was some talk about which Send ARP to use.
One of the thoughts was to use the one that comes with heartbeat from Linux-HA.
That version has just been totally rewritten to be cross-platform compatible. =
(i.e. Solaris, OpenBSD, and Linux have been tested with the new version.)
This new version was just checked into CVS, but the old Linux only version is =
in the released version.
Since this project only cares about Linux compatibility, you guys might want to =
go ahead and grab a copy of the current Linux only version just so you can be =
sure of having a copy if that is the way you decide to go.
FYI: My understanding is that the Linux only version has been used in lots =
production environments and tested against a large number of switches. Several =
changes had been made in the last 18 months to ensure as large of a list of =
compatible switches as possible.=20
(Apparently there are a small number of very "secure" switches which =
intentionally ignore the arp updates, and require a telnet script to login and =
flush the arp cache. These are NOT supported by either of these Send ARP =
The new version has had very limited testing by one person as of yet.
