I believe your ARP request for is used during the boot
sequence, at a point when the Suns don't know their Internet address.
They seem to use their serial number as an address. You'll also find
such addressing in the routing tables in certain versions of SunOS.
I suggest that you take 60 * 256 + 216, and see if you don't have
a Sun with that serial number.
