Bug#612902: O: arpalert -- Monitor ARP changes in ethernet networks
I intend to orphan the arpalert package. I no longer use arpalert
and active upstream development seems stoped.
The package description is:
This package provides the arpalert daemon.
It listens on a network interface (without using 'promiscuous' mode) and
catches all conversations of MAC address to IP request.
It then compares the mac addresses it detected with a pre-configured list of
authorized MAC addresses. If the MAC is not in list, arpalert launches a
pre-defined user script with the MAC address and IP address as parameters.
This software can run in daemon mode; it's very fast (low CPU and memory
It responds at signal SIGHUP (configuration reload) and at signals SIGTERM,
SIGINT, SIGQUIT and SIGABRT (arpalert stops itself).
If you need to use a list of authorized MAC addresses, this package should
suit your needs, otherwise arpwatch may be also fine.
