    Default Can you ARP spoof to much?

    Is there like a limit to how many times you should send spoofed ARP's?

    Also is there a limit to how long you can do it? Will the cache get overloaded if you send your packets to many times?

    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.

    Is there a limit by sending DHCP Requests and Reponds too many times? Or Ping? No :-)

    The cache will never get overloaded, however if you flood a computer with Arp packets
    it might crash due to a DoS condition. I'm not sure if this is true though but try it out.

    Just keep in mind, that when you stop arp spoofing one problem might occur:
    All clients that were arp spoofed might loose connection to A) The whole network
    or B) The internet due to you might be aggregating gateway and then the other
    computers on the network will think they have to go through you.

    Of course the cache will eventually clear itself.
