I'm using ISO CLNP to run a custom boot server for an old diskless
workstation (an IsiCAD Prisma, uses ISO in place of the more usual
BOOTP). 'ifconfig.le0' on my 1.3 system looks like this:

	inet estcarp netmask 0xffffff00

The NSAP is my MAC address with '49.00.01' on the front and an '00'
on the end. This is a minimal NSAP but it works for me.
