They sure act like it.... but the iPhone has no SIM card in it so it only uses the wireless here in the office and the iMac has an Ethernet cable to it and I turned off the AirPort wireless adapter. They both are getting IP addresses, subnets and gateways that are consistent with the internal network.

The really weird part is that I have an Apache HTTP instance and a Tomcat instance on the Windows server I run as well as a Tomcat instance on my laptop. So I can hit the internal address of the HTTP server and the Tomcat server on the Windows box as well as the Tomcat instance on the laptop, all using internal addresses but I CANNOT hit the internal address for the HTTP and Tomcat server on the IBM i. In fact, trace route can't find the host. That pretty much indicates a routing issue (I think) with the i. The default gateway on the *DFTROUTE points back to the internal address on the firewall which is where it should point in order to get to the Internet.

It is pretty bizarre and must have something to do with the way routing works on the Mac (?). Somehow, it is having trouble seeing the i but no trouble seeing any Windows or Linux box.

Are you sure these are not getting IP address from your 3G/4G service instead of internal wireless? Or maybe they have both active and getting confused which to use?
