Install Git version of arp-scan on Ubuntu and Raspbian

If you need the newest arp-scan (for example because of it's uptodate MAC address list), here is how to install the Git version of arp-scan on Ubuntu and Raspberry's Raspbian (and probably Debian).

Disclaimer: no IPv6 involved.

Here's the set of commands:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install automake libpcap-dev

git clone https://github.com/royhills/arp-scan.git
cd arp-scan/

aclocal
autoheader
autoreconf -i
automake
autoconf
./configure 
make
sudo ./arp-scan --localnet --interface=wlan0

That should work: it should give the MAC addresses visible via interface wlan0. Change to eth0 if you're system is connected via eth0.

To install the new arp-scan unto your system:

sudo make install
sudo arp-scan --localnet --interface=wlan0

Check the version:

sander@flappie:~/git/arp-scan$ sudo ./arp-scan --version
arp-scan 1.9.2

There are two kind of addressing techniques which among them are the best for providing a long range to consumers.
