SUMMARY: Networking problem with Solaris 2.4 x86

My original question was asking why when I'd try to telnet to one machine
I'd be connected to another machine, even if I'd use an IP address.
I ended up working out what was wrong after doing a snoop on the network
packets; the ethernet address was incorrect. This lead me to look at arp.

The solution seems to be to setup static arps for the netblazers on each of the
machines when they start up. This will prevent the machines from seeing the
bogus ARP packets which are causing the problem.

Thanks to: - suggested using static arps

   My opinions are just that, *mine*. My company would post them if it agreed
