Nikos, unfortunately, I'm not sure.
It was one of those things where in an effort to quickly fix things, I
split up the collision domain and used a router to handle the ARP.
Right now, a 7201 router has about 15K ARPs, and the system is much slower.
In similar situations later (when a router is not handy), I would like
the option of using a FreeBSD box (hence the reason I posed the
question here on the forum).
