The trouble with this, Dennis, so far as I can see, is that this box
isn't UNIX - we have never had to think about clearing ARP on this box.
I don't know if there is even a way to do it.

with some other command.
This system, as you know, is positioned as not needing all that
administrative stuff other OS' do.
So is there a way to clear the ARP? It'd be an interesting thing to know.
