a) he reset it
b) he's getting ARP replies for the MAC concerned
So that'd be a switch that both stores its ARP cache to non-volatile
RAM /and/ synthesises ARP replies on behalf of MACs.
Ie, it's likely not the switch (the one reset anyway). I'm still
curious about switches that proxy ARP.
Presuming it's the 'old' host (one IP was moved away), be interesting
to see if 'arp -s <IP> <correct MAC>' has any effect..
