Hi.. Does anyone here know how to implement a "Reverse ARP" request?
I have a piece of hardware that has a network port for remote control (RJ45, 10/100 UTP etc) but next to no physical user interface, but it does support IP address assignment by DHCP. The documentation says to do a "Ping cXXXXXX" (Where XXXXXX is the last 6 digits of it's "hardware" address, with no -'s or :'s) to "discover" it's assigned IP address, after that to use Telnet client to control it's functions. Needless to say, that doesn't work on any system I've tried. In fact, I can find no implementation of the Ping command that takes has a "c" subcommand and paramater like that, in either the Windows or Linux world.. So, after extensive googling etc (and a few confusing RFC's) I find I need to do whats called a "Reverse ARP" request... Can this be done with ICS? Or, is it Socket programming time.... Cheers.
