The addresses like 0.0.0.144 are coming from a Kinetics AppleTalk to
Ethernet bridge. The K-boxes used this invalid ARP before the 0x809b
Kinetics AppleTalk-Ethernet and 0x80f3 AppleTalk ARP packet types were
assigned. There is a small software configuration which will
eleminate them. If anyone would like to know how to do this, just let
me know.
