Dear All,

My application requires to to send an ARP(Adress Resolution protocol ) request from the Android application layer.
As ARP is based on RAW Sockets,with the initial investigation, It is shown that RAW sockets are not accessible from Java or through any android API's.
I also tried to send a request via a native language, but this requires super user permission. Rooting a phone to run this is not a feasible option as this is just an application development.
Please let us know if there any way to send an ARP request from Android application without rooting a phone.

Thanks in Advance,
