I have to dash out of a few hours; but the short
answer is the first round of packet captures
are too far from the host to matter.

second set are doing better, but still
would be best to compare with tcpdumps
from the device A itself, to see what it
thinks it's sending out, vs what is seen
upstream of it.  Can you grab tcpdumps
from server A itself?

Thanks!
