SYNOPSIS

chpoarp if_name mac_addr [net_addr] [/ net_mask] ...

DESCRIPTION

choparp is a easy-to-use proxy ARP daemon. It watches ARP request packets visible on the interface specified by argument if_name, and sends proxy ARP reply to the sender if the ARP request queries the MAC address (ethernet hardware address) for the network specified by net_addr / net_mask.

mac_addr is th MAC address to be published for the specified hosts. It is normally the address of if_name. The format of mac_addr must be 6 colon-separated bytes of hexadecimal value, such as 00:00:01:01:14:46. The keyword auto can also be used to use the address of if_name from the system configuration.

A carp(4) virtual router address can be specified as vhid:<hex>

net_addr must be in dotted quad notation (for example 133.138.1.134) or be a 32 bit hexadecimal value starting with "0x" (for example 0x858a0186). net_mask can likewise be speficied as a dotted quad or hexadecimal value, or alternatively as a mask length. The following address specifications are therefore equivalent:
192.168.98.0/255.255.254.0
192.168.98.0/0xfffffe00
192.168.98.0/23

Multiple addresses can be specified. Addresses can be excluded by preceding them with

EXAMPLES

If you have network interface "ne0" with MAC address "00:00:01:01:14:16", and would like to send proxy ARP reply for 192.168.0.64/26, the argument would be as follows:
choparp ne0 00:00:01:01:14:46 192.168.0.64/255.255.255.192

BUGS

Supports Ethernet interfaces only. Handles single interface at a time. (you can start multiple choparp for multiple interfaces, though).
