Hey

I don`t know how deep Perl can go under the IP stack
but just one comment:

If you are looking at a remote IP the only source MAC
address you will find on that packet is the one of the
last router/host/hop it went through...

I hope that is what you are looking for, coz it wont
get any better than that

GreetZ!,

print "profeth still\n" if /bird|devil/;

    I have a similar problem. Somewhere on our network there is a RAS that's bugging my SCO UNIX box every few seconds. The result is the bootp program filling the syslog with error messages about a bad address from this MAC address. The address is 52.41.53... and that's a RAS. But I can't find this offending device by the MAC address. I found some software that hunts down all the MAC addresses on my subnet, but no further. Any suggestions?
      Total non Perl reply, but just a reply to try and help you:
      There is no way that you can find MAC addresses outside
      your subnet, in fact,all ARP and RARP requests are
      limited to the segment(s) you`re in...(searching from)
