I will, but I definitely observed repeated incoming ARP requests for an IP
that I thought was configured on the server, although I neglected to
capture evidence. The addresses had not previously been assigned, so I
don't think there could be an ARP table entry to flush, and having
restarted the vservers it once again became possible to access them
without any changes to the firewall.

I will investigate further when I can afford potential downtime,
and capture a tcpdump and the output of "ip link show", "ip route show"
and "arp -n" to prove that the machine is not responding to ARPs. Is there
anything else I should capture?

Is it possible that "vserver X stop" does not always take down the right

Cheers, Chris.
