Well, I'm afraid I didn't get it: DECnet did. I guess it doesn't
use your algorithm.

Herewith the Ethernet address used by the same node with the same
hardware interface after I changed its address to be 43.298
= 44330 decimal (1024*43+298).

(We are in the process of vacating area 19 so someone else can use it.)

The following report was generated by the command
"MCR NCP SHOW KNOWN LINE CHARACTERISTICS"

Known Line Volatile Characteristics as of 11-AUG-1987 08:38:42

Line = UNA-0

Receive buffers = 6
Controller = normal
Protocol = Ethernet
Service timer = 4000
Hardware address = AA-00-03-01-1D-E7
UNA device buffer size = 1498

I hope this helps.
