The output of nbplkup is null. It doesn't appear to be sending traffic
though the localnet.

One interesting point is that I sometimes have my iBook running OS 10.4.8
hooked up via ethernet to an ethernet switch (which the ethernet switch is
then hooked up to the 7500 and to the AsanteTalk bridge) and I am unable
to see the iBook via nbplkup or any other means from  Debian, I am unable
to see the Debian box from "Browse Network" in the iBook, but if I choose
"Connect to Server" and input the Debian box's IP address in the iBook, I
*am* able to log into the Debian box, which acts as an AppleTalk server. I
dunno if that has any bearing, but just in case it might ...
