Didn't you ask the same question in comp.sys.sun.admin? If you must post
in multiple groups, please cross-post, don't multi-post, so that readers of
both groups won't see it multiple times.
However, I have one thing to add to what I wrote when I responded in the
other group. There's a current thread in this group titled "arp cache not
clearing". It sounds similar to your problem, so I suggest you take a look
