It also can't arp. You'll need to prime the arp cache from a file for every
host that needs immutable logs. Have you tried this? I wonder if you'll even
get a link light.
A syslog that strips formfeeds and line feeds attached to a printer is a
little better, but I haven't found an efficient way to egrep with my eyes.
