RE: [K12OSN] TFTP......ARP timeout when using a different network segment

Hi all,

Bert replying to his own question.

Problem solved.

It stems from another issue which required a temporary fix.

One server didn't have NIC speeds specified. This didn't get noticed until 
we had a power outage last week.

As a temporary fix I put a slow hub between the server and the switch, but 
also connected one 100 mbps segment to the slow hub. So the old 3-4-5 rule 

I carried out a physical cable trace this morning, and voila, that's when 
the cause showed up.

I've tested a connection from the classroom next door, now for the far end 
on my network! NEXT THE WORLD HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!! Penguin
