Configuring ARP-Ping MAC

Configuring ARP-Ping MAC


When you know a specific MAC address but not the corresponding IP address on a network segment, you can obtain the corresponding IP address using the ping arp mac command to send ICMP packets. In this way, you can obtain the IP address mapping the MAC address.


  • Run ping arp mac mac-address { ip-address [ vpn-instance vpn-instance-name ] | interface interface-type interface-number }

    Check whether the MAC address is used.

    • If the following information is displayed, the MAC address is not used.

      <HUAWEI> ping arp mac 286e-d488-b6a7 interface vlanif 109
        OutInterface: Vlanif109 MAC[28-6E-D4-88-B6-A7], press CTRL_C to break
