Default Gratuitous ARP on Vista?

Hi Experts:

I have noticed some differences on Windows Vista regarding to the gratuitous
ARP: I have a virtual adapter, under Windows XP, when IP Helper function
"IpRenewAddress" is called for the virtual adapter, gratuitous ARP packet is
generated by the system; but under Windows Vista, this seems is not
happening. Does this make sense? Can this be explained?

Thanks in Advance!
Polaris

Probably because the entire TCP/IP stack of Vista is new from the ground up.

Windows XP's network stack is a bit old (I think it came from Windows 95, or
at least Windows NT 4.0), so the ARP packet may be an older, no longer in
use functionality.

Which begs the question... which BSD-licensed OS did they kype it from this
time? )

I understand it came from OpenBSD, and not a very recent one, at that,
actually.
