SmartARP server for Windows
bridge and smartARP server, Version 23/6/99 (1.44MB FDD bootable image
diskette.) Install up to six NE2000 compatible PCI Ethernet cards (10Mbps
10/100Mbps) in the PC box and boot from this diskette. A Cisco IOS like
interface will come up with online help. The default configuration is that
box acts as transparent Ethernet bridge (Ethernet switch) between all
Ethernet interfaces. Make sure that it works in this mode, and only then
broadcast forwarding and configure smartARP according to your needs.

February 22, 2000. Latest SmartARP developments.
SmartARP v3.0 for Windows NT
is now available thanks to Karlis Ogsts ( email@example.com ).
This server is more advanced than previous servers for W95 and Linux
in the way that it allows to use also ARP requestor source IP address as
a parameter in SmartARP configuration. This feature allows use of SmartARP also with
secondary IP addresses. Another new feature in v3.0 is
possibility to log SmartARP activities to Logfile.

A switch which supports MAC unicast (but not broadcast or
multicast) forwarding between VLANs has been found. This feature is present in the
Switch 9300 of 3Com and it is enabled with operation mode named "allOpen". This
finding was reported by Luis Rafael
( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
According to 3Com "AllOpen" feature is present in 3Com SuperStack II Switch 9300
and Switch 3900. Under name "FastIP ON" this feature is also present
in 3Com SuperStackI II Switch 1100 and Switch 3300, and probably (according to catalogue)
also in SuperStack II Switch 610 and Switch 630. 3Com implementation of FastIP
use of proprietary NIC drivers, but use of smartARP allows to use these switches
in FastIP mode with
Final nice news is that our paper about SmartARP has appeared in the "Computer
Networks" journal nicely printed. Bibliographic refference:
