Help ---- arp calling for qwn IP address ??

Post by Mike Kurkows » Wed, 21 Oct 1998 04:00:00



Hi all,
I have a recuring entry in /var/log/messages.:-

kernel: ARP: arp called for own IP address

I also have some network config problems
that may be causing this.
If I enter:-

# arp -s pitts xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
(the hardware address is correct as in ifconfig)

I get        

 SIOCSARP and OLD_SIOCSARP: invalid argument
No ARP support or route to destination points to other interface

I really need some pointer to where to look.

I suspect the routing table ??

Any advice gladly accepted.

TIA

Mike

1. ARP: arp called for own IP address HELP

Hi,

New to Linux, running FT.

NE2000 ether=10,0x240,eth0

During the bootup sequence I get the error

ARP: arp called for own IP address

I understand this translates as ARP asked for address' and
got its own address back.

After the login prompt appears I don't see the error again.

There are no conflicting IP address' on the net and the error
occurs even if the FS is not connected to the net.

Any help welcome

Be in touch.

Mark
