    flushing arp cache

    jeff New Member

      - Will rebooting flush the arp cache?

      - What is the default arp cache age time out?

      - Can an arp entry be statically entered so it will never be aged out of cache?

          @jeff - Thank you for posting your question on the forum!

           

          The ARP cache will be flushed with a reboot of an AOS device. You can also flush the ARP cache in the CLI by issuing the clear arp-c command.

           

          The default ARP cache time out is 20 minutes.

           

          You are able to add a static ARP entry to an AOS device in the CLI. The command in config mode is shown below:

          switch(config)# arp <IP Address> <MAC Address> arpa

          Example: switch(config)# arp 1.1.1.1 aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff arpa

           

          I hope this answers your question, but please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any further questions.

           

          Thanks,

          Noor
