you probably want

Code: Select all

tcpdump -n -w /var/log/arp.dump arp
Watch out for the Manners Taliban!
Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

yes, but then you can load them up into any program that understands the tcpdump format -- wireshark, etc.

i don't see why any of this is necessary: arpwatch should take care of this problem.
