ip neigh show and NUD_NOARP state - is it possible ?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hello, I know that there are devices which are not working with arp. For example, the loopback device. I was wondering whether it is possible to create neighbours in a NUD_NOARP state; so that "ip neigh show" will show such neighbours where their state is NUD_ARP. I made some tests with the loopback device , but could not find such a way to cause it to appear as NUD_NOARP. Also if I ping a (nonexisting) multicast address (like 18.104.22.168) I don't see it in "ip neigh show" (but I see it in the routing cache). Could it be done ? (maybe with multicast/braodcast)? BTW, I see an example in the documentation which demonstrates NUD_NOARP on the loopback device, but this documentation is from quite a time ago.
