I have a perfect record. Three postings about problems with yarrow
and no one has an answer. Could some one look if their broadcast
address is reported correctly wqhen you run:
ifconfig eth0
and let me know so at least I would
know it is possible even if I don't know how to make my system do it.
Obviously I don't want several hundred responses so we can stop
after 2 or 3.
