The Alpha is a Little Endian machine. The Sun is a Big Endian machine. The
4.0B3 Cornell Reflector does not process ip wild cards properly on Little
Endian Machines.

This bug has been fixed in the currently available White Pine Reflector. You
can download a demo version and use it for free for 30 days.
