I have done some detective work and discovered that the problem is icmp
echo replies (pongs). As soon as someone pings me from outside, the pong
goes out and cisco updates its arp cache. That's the kiss of death. So
how do I tell cisco to stop being such a wise guy and only update the
arp cache when it gets an arp reply?
