Configuring ARP Unicast Probe

Configuring ARP Unicast Probe


On some special networks, user terminals do not accept broadcast packets to ensure network security. Therefore, these user terminals directly discard the received broadcast ARP Request packets, and other devices on the networks cannot learn the ARP entries.

To resolve this problem, configure ARP unicast probe enabling the device to send a unicast ARP Request packet to detect whether user terminals exist


  • Run the arp send-packet ip-address mac-address interface interface-type interface-number [ vid vid [ cevid cevid ] ] command in any view to configure ARP unicast probe.

    After ARP unicast probe is configured, the device sends a unicast ARP Request packet.

Verifying the Configuration

Run the display current-configuration | include arp send-packet command to verify the ARP unicast probe configuration.
