Apparently, a problem exists under HPUX when attempting to configure two subnets (using 128 as the netmask)

Two possible solutions:

  1. Kernel update:

    /usr/bin/adb -w /stand/vmunix \
    /dev/kmem >> /tmp/adb_log 2>&1 << end
    check_bcast_addr/W 0
    check_bcast_addr?W 0
  2. nettune:

    /usr/contrib/bin/nettune -s ip_check_subnet_addr 0

I haven’t tried either solution yet...
