RE: ip addresses

Interesting.  Have you ever had a problem with people spoofing MAC addresses
to get IP's?  How does your system react if more than one host presents a
request for an IP if that MAC has already been assigned an IP?  Seems like
if they're going to the trouble to give you the MAC address you might as
well give them fixed ip's.  Do you have more customers than IP's?  Have you
ever had anybody try to scram your network? :)
