The problem was that sun 3/60 was jumper-set to use aui. But the problem
is that it send by bnc port rarp requests even in "aui mode". Thanks to
these gurus that spent time answering me:

Herman, Scott R (MED)
Charlie Mengler
Gene Rackow
scott r kulp
Bertrand Hutin

Thanks by the time and patience,
