Do you have an /etc/arpon.conf file?

If yes, can you attach it?

Please also attach the output of "strace arpon -i eth0 -S". Thank you.

Thank you.
I solved this problem.
I has an /etc/arpon.conf file.But I has not an /var/log/arpon folder.
arpon must create arpon.log in this folder.

I just installed arpon on my system and /var/log/arpon has been created by the postinst script. I don't think that there's any bug here. Closing the ticket.
