from Huawei CLI – “arp-ping”

I have never used it but it looks interesting. Arp-ping lets us to check whether a specified IP address or MAC address is being used in a LAN. Intrigued, I opened Huawei eNSP simulator to check this feature. Results are not fully satisfied. As arp-ping IP works correctly, I cannot say the same about arp-ping MAC. There are some problems with communication between router and hosts. It looks like router does not receive ICMP Echo Reply packets from hosts in the LAN. I checked the same between router and switch “labnario_SW2″. Results look promising. Let’s pass on to the lab.

Labnario_RT config:

#
vlan batch 100 200
#
interface Vlanif100
 ip address 10.0.0.100 255.255.255.0 
#
interface Ethernet0/0/0
 port link-type trunk
 port trunk allow-pass vlan 100
#
interface GigabitEthernet0/0/1
 ip address 172.16.0.100 255.255.255.0
