System: NetBSD 4.0_BETA NetBSD 4.0_BETA (GRITTYKITTY-$Revision: 4.004 $) #1: Fri Sep 8 00:06:45 UTC 2006 macppc
Architecture: powerpc
Machine: macppc
When net.inet.ip.hostzerobroadcast is set and when a host is at the base 
address of a subnet, communication works except from machines behind ip 
filter's NAT. See:
Put a host at the base address of a subnet. On another machine which is on 
the same subnet, set net.inet.ip.hostzerobroadcast=1. Try to communicate 
with the host at the base address from somewhere that is behind NAT on the 
other machine.
None known.
