I have been told that, in addition to the 802.3/Ethernet problem, HP 3000s
also use some mechanism other than ARP for address resolution. Is this
correct, and could you shed some more light on this? There are other
routers now which support 802.3, will they work with HP software?

Can you give any information as to if and when HP3000s will talk
to Ethernets, and if ARP will be supported at that time?
