[PEN-TEST] Bizzare Network Errors Found During Pen Test (IP ARP Throttled)

Turns out it is a simple problem throwing the "IP ARP
Throttled" errors. Evidently in this instance the
router was not getting the ARP responses, even tho it
already had many of the devices in a local ARP cache.
Default Gateways and routes are not properly
configured on the far end, except on the devices I can
communicate with. <ARGH!>

The far end has most devices defaulting to a local
firewall which does not have routes for the enterprise
network configured. They simply need to change the
default route or add routes on their local firewall
for the "Enterprise Network" networks to point to the
local router.

Even tho it turned out to be a simple configuration
problem it was very frustrating in light of the errors
and symptoms it was presenting.

Many Thanks for everyone's help and advice!!!
