Here the set-up:
a laptop with suse 7.0 connected in a private network made by sun and hp
unix workstations throu a ethernet interface.
The interface seems to be well configured (IP and routing tables are
reasonable) anyhow the arp table of the linux box has some problems: many
entries as shown by the "arp -n" command are displayed with the tag
"incomplete" in place of the MAC address.

the local ARP table or not) and if I sneef (with "tcpdump" utility) the
packets transited by my linux box I only see "arp request" frames without
any "arp request reply" (even if the arp reply has been sent from the
Are there any tcp-ip default settings (timers or so on) that are not
"standard" or ar least "copliant" with solaris or hp-ux once?
Thanks in advance
