This has been happening for a while, but I've been too busy making stupid
mistakes to bother noticing.
I have an Amiga running NetBSD. It provides nfs to an Amiga running
AmigaDOS, and telnet/gateway/etc. services to both the Amiga and a Mac.
It now also provides RARP, tftp, and nfs to a pair of Sparcs.
The Sun 4/110 works fine.
The Sparc SLC never works at first.
"arp slc2" produces
slc2 (188.8.131.52) at (incomplete)
... However, if I do
arp -d slc2; arp -s slc2 8:0:20:2:c5:df
(the correct values)
it then connects and works correctly. I never have any trouble with it
until the next time the Amiga reboots. (Normally rare, but I've been
poking around a lot recently.)
All of these computers (except the mac) are connected to an AUI box of
some sort; the Mac is connected to a 10baseT hub connected to that box.
