[Linux-HA] send_arp - Solaris question

My send_arp is in /usr/local/lib/heartbeat/. The way that send_arp is
invoked on my SPARC Solaris box is as follows:
send_arp -i 500 -r 10 le0 192.168.195.8 auto 192.168.195.8
I think it is 2 things. The first I think, is your broadcast address. From
my experience, I believe that you want to use the address for the broadcast
address. The second is that send_arp is expecting a hex netmask ( not a
dotted quad ).
Try it with this command:
send_arp dmfe0 192.168.0.33 auto 192.168.0.33 ffffffffffff

That looks pretty good to me. My first guess would be
that libnet is doing something weird.
Matt Soffen might have some tips on what version to use on Solaris.

Not as such. Though it it would be treivial to make one.
