I think you may be missing exactly what this application does.

The 'arp' command merely shows what is already inside of the ARP tables which means if your machine hasn't specifically sent a request (and received a reply) there is no way for the aforementioned command to know that a host is currently residing on a network.

For example, you have a router with a few machines on your network and these machines do not communicate with one another and have no obligation to do so. Technically, they have no idea that they exist. Especially when a switch is involved as opposed to a hub.

To put it simply, relying on the 'arp' command is not nearly enough.

With NabARP you have the option to *actively seek* hosts that may be on your LAN instead of relying on requests/responses to be sent due to attempts in resolving hardware to IP addresses.

I'm sure in most cases the same addresses will pop up, however I wouldn't rely on it. Keep in mind that any foreign/unknown hosts *will* appear with the 'arp' command after a scan from NabARP has been performed.

In doing so, yes, of course the exact same information will show up in both.

Don't pay for this. Run 'arp -n -a' in the terminal and you have the same result.
