I don't have 7 installed on anything, anymore, but 9 has two arping
commands. One in /sbin/ the other in /usr/sbin/. Neither of which is
in the search path for ordinary users. Try looking for yours in there.

locate ping|grep bin

But only /sbin/arping is used by default. So it is strange that there
are two of them.

One is a symlink to the other.

the arping under /usr/sbin is a symlink pointing to /sbin/arping

That does answer the question of why there are two of them.

That does answer the question of why there are two of them.


There aren't two of them as he said one is a symlink, the symlink in
/usr/sbin points to the arping in /sbin. It is essentially a shortcut,
like a desktop short cut that starts for example firefox. Its not
actually the program but a pointer to the file you want to execute. As
to why there is a symlink which seems to be your question, because some
other program or programs are coded to expect arping to be in /usr/sbin
rather than sbin so the symlink was created to satisfy this dependency
or the other programs would fail to find it and as a result fail to
execute as expected.
