Is there an RARP tool for Windows Is there an RARP tool for Windows itsp1965 (IS/IT--Management) (OP) 27 Jan 04 11:25 It seems that when trying to track down a machine given its MAC address we're always at a loss. Therefore anyone know of an RARP (Reverse ARP) tool for Windows. Thanks.

RE: Is there an RARP tool for Windows JBruyet (IS/IT--Management) 4 Feb 04 13:59 What I do is check the port tables in my network switches for the MAC address. Then I can tell which jack is connected to that port and that tells me where the machine is. HTH,Joe Brouillette RE: Is there an RARP tool for Windows pavloc30 (TechnicalUser) 7 Feb 05 07:04 I am also seeking the same kind of windows based tool (RARP a given MAC to obtain the IP).I am checking my CAM and mac-address-tables and want to add descriptions for server connections / produce topology diagrams. So I have the MACs and want resolve to IP them to name - the later stage not being a problem.If you have found one please let me know.RegardsPavloc30 RE: Is there an RARP tool for Windows bofhrevenge2 (MIS) 7 Feb 05 07:26 Get Mac will scan a subnet and return a list of MAC addresses and the IP's.http://www.youngzsoft.net/cc-get-mac-address/ I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out - Bill Hicks RE: Is there an RARP tool for Windows pavloc30 (TechnicalUser) 7 Feb 05 13:09 thanks bofhrevenge2,This doesn't do exactly what I need, but as it exports directly to a .csv I will able to find the info after a few network scans!Thanks RE: Is there an RARP tool for Windows Castor66 (IS/IT--Management) 7 Feb 05 13:24 Why not just issue an 'arp -a' command? RE: Is there an RARP tool for Windows tmt7734 (IS/IT--Management) 7 Feb 05 14:15 Arp -a will work if you have communicated with the machine in question via ip. If you have DHCP you could look a the leased addresses. Also, there is a cool tool called megaping that you can get from download.com/ RE: Is there an RARP tool for Windows pavloc30 (TechnicalUser) 8 Feb 05 05:40 Hi All,Sorry castor66 I want REVERSE arp ; given a MAC find the IP not the other way around.tmt7734 thanks for that; I do have a couple of ping sweepers but have a lot of networks, subnetworks and vlans. I also have a combination of static and dynamic addressing. I am trying to cut corners and find a RARP utilty that I cut and paste a MAC in to and it would do the reverse arp (IP resolution). My best bet so far is the cc-get-mac from http://www.youngzsoft.net/cc-get-mac-address/ (suggested by bofhrevenge2, as I can save the output (including DNS resolution) to a .csv. However I still need to scan all the IP ranges first!If any one knows I specific utility for RARP I would be interested. (Please realise I understand ARP, RARP and windows and cisco based cmds)Many thanks!
