A few others have reported this problem as well, and I'ts likely related
to the change I made to if.c to get atalk to properly work on my network.
I suspect that the range (0-65534) given by atalkd to ne0 if wrong here,
as the network 0 is attributed to the loopback interface.
I suspect the range should be 1-65534.
(credits to Juergen Hannken-Illjes for discovering that changing the start from
0 to 1 makes it work).
Maybe someone knowing appletalk better than I do can comment ?
