Raspberry Pi lost… and found

How to find my RPi2 on network. I use arp-scan, brewed in my MacOS shell:

$ brew update
$ brew install arp-scan

Optional steps (for proper vendor decoding):

$ get-iab -v -f /usr/local/share/arp-scan/ieee-iab.txt
Renaming /usr/local/share/arp-scan/ieee-iab.txt to /usr/local/share/arp-scan/ieee-iab.txt.bak

$ get-oui -v -f /usr/local/share/arp-scan/ieee-oui.txt
Renaming /usr/local/share/arp-scan/ieee-oui.txt to /usr/local/share/arp-scan/ieee-oui.txt.bak

Now scan local network (don’t forget sudo):

$ sudo arp-scan --localnet | grep -i 'b8:27:eb'	b8:27:eb:dd:e3:c6	Raspberry Pi Foundation
