Description Louis Mandelstam 2000-12-05 12:21:19 UTC
tcpdump-3.4-31 (current) includes arpwatch-2.1a4.

Please note that arpwatch is up to arpwatch-2.1a10, to be found at what I
believe to be the home site - ftp://ftp.ee.lbl.gov

The newer version appears to address some of the issues currently addressed
using extra patches and also adds simple new functionality, such as the -n
switch which solves the problem of logging a lot of bogons when using
aliased IP interfaces.

Upgraded tcpdump*.src.rpm + patches are available (at least for some time) at http://www.netcore.fi/pekkas/linux/ ; too many
to attach here neatly.

Before prime time, arpwatch would have to be assigned an UID, init.d/arpwatch tweaked and 
/var/arpwatch owner.group perms changed.  This is post a10 issue though.

Comment 2 Louis Mandelstam 2001-01-29 13:04:07 UTC
The new tcpdump on rawhide is still using arpwatch-2.1a4.  Sorry, what did I
