SubjectRe: arpd not working in 2.4.17 or 2.5.1

But arp>1024 is Very Important, else linux will never be able to talk to more
than 1024 clients !

Linux is my favourite and I wonder if this limit will kill linux for the race
with Solaris/M$ server market. So pls save me :) and help neighour.c/network
layer in new kernel.

Thanks in Advance.
