I have two hosts (NotLinux) and (linux- on
a vlan.
On the linux box the vlan interface is created with vconfig and is
attached to a Virtual PHY (fixed PHY).
When Linux box starts up, NotLinux wants to setup a TCP connection with
"Linux box" and sends a SYN packet receiving no answer from "Linux box".
If from the console of "Linux box" I issue a ping to NotLinux then,
after a while, the linux box starts responding to Windows.
