Hi All

I have a bit of a problem.  We have a 6.1 FreeBSD server with natting
and firewall rules for the servers behind it.  This FreeBSD server has
an identical fail over server.

The other night we tested the fail over server.  It worked find but
because the gateway before the fail over server had arp cache "the old
Mac-addresses" it took about 5 minutes before we could access the
servers behind the fail over server.

Is there anyway that you are able to set the arp cache refresh time?
