    Duplicate MAC address

    Can some one tell me exactly what happens if we have duplicate MAC
    address on the same LAN (no switch in between). Also assume that they
    have statily different IP's assigned. My guess is that both NIC's should
    get the packet and if the s/w stack is correctly implemented, the
    incorrect destination should then drop it.
