What would be nice is if the 400 could tell you what MAC addresses were
located on the Ethernet segment.  Something that a Unix machine can do quite
well.  For all of the things that the 400 does well, this lack of networking
tools has to be one of its downfalls.  Does anyone know if IBM has any plans
to add basic networking tools such as this in future releases?

I've seen that question asked a lot this week, but no answers.  It
probably won't help you, though.  The only address stored in ARP should be
your next hop (router, firewall, etc.) since it will return it's MAC
address when asked about anything outside.
