I'm not sure this is the correct forum to post this in. I couldn't find arp or WOL support for Puppy Linux 1.0.6. Since I'm too lazy to compile them myself I copied my arp and wol binaries from Fedora Core 4 and they just worked. In case anyone else would like em, I've attached these files to this port.

The "arp" file is simply copied from a stock Fedora Core 4 install. The WOL files are from the wol-0.7.1-2.1.fc3.rf.i386.rpm I downloaded from here:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/dag/fedora/3/i386/wol-0.7.1-2.1.fc3.rf.i386.html

All of these files seem to work on on Puppy Linux 1.0.6. I just copied them to /root/my-applications/bin.

See http://ahh.sourceforge.net/wol/wol.html for the wake on lan usage. If you don't know how to use arp, 'arp --help' may help you.

I think you got the right forum. What do 'arp' and 'Wake on LAN' do, exactly?

arp and wol are unrelated. I posted them both together in one file only because they're small. I probably should've posted them separately.

The arp binary displays the contents of your computer's arp cache. The arp cache is a table which maps MAC addresses to IP addresses. The output will look someting like this:
# arp
Address HWtype HWaddress Flags Mask Iface
10.1.1.1 ether 12:34:56:BB:E9:FF C eth0

Wake on Lan allows you to remotely wake up a computer over the network. Getting the host computer set up so that it can be woke up remotely can be tricky, but once that's done using the wol client is easy. Simply run 'wol MACADDRESS'. Example output:
# wol 12:34:56:BB:E9:FF
Waking up 12:34:56:BB:E9:FF...

After running the command above the computer with MAC address 12:34:56:BB:E9:FF will power on. My wife uses wol and remote desktop to remotely access her Windows machine in the basement without having to walk all the way down there to turn it on. The URL I listed in my first post has more details about the magic behind WOL.
