    If your workstation has communicated to another TCP/IP device ... an ARP entry will be created.
    You can view the ARP table:
    Code:
    $ arp -a
    ARP entries will expire.



    Men occasionally stumble over the truth,
    but most of them pick themselves up
    and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
