ARP / RARP module for Python
This module is a collection of functions to craft ARP and RARP packets to resolve physical addresses associated with specific ips and functions to convert mac and ip addresses to different representation formats. It also allows you to send out raw ethernet frames of your preferred protocol type. DESIGNED FOR USE ON WINDOWS.
NOTE: Some functions in this module use winpcap for windows. Please make sure that wpcap.dll is present in your system to use them.
This module is designed to ease the use of winpcap and the sending of raw ethernet packets (ARP and RARP frames specifically). As of SP2 Windows XP (and greater) no longer natively support raw sockets but winpcap fixes this problem. The arp.py module allows quick development of network scripts that work with raw network packets on windows machines.
