I'm not sure that assigning static arps are the best solution, if solution exists. While coding my network mapper (arpmap : little pub : http://spacewalker.d2g.com/~aris/arpmap/ ) I noticed that sending broadcasts arp requests for random IPs made my network fall down. I've only a 10 mbps net, but the ressources on my primary server went up to 90 percents.

If someone knows a solution to that, I'd be glad
