problems sending packets on solaris 10

I'm running solaris 10 and dhcpd 4.0.0b3. It seems to start okay, and
when a client sends a DHCPDISCOVER, dhcpd logs a response being sent
back. However, the client never sees the response. And snoop doesn't
show any packets other than the discovers.

My dhcpd logs:

bash-3.00# /opt/isc-dhcp/sbin/dhcpd -cf /opt/isc-dhcp/etc/dhcpd.conf -d

DHCPDISCOVER from 00:14:4f:8d:bb:52 via nge0
DHCPOFFER on to 00:14:4f:8d:bb:52 via nge0

Those interfaces look a little funny to me, but I couldn't compile
with sockets. And from the other posts seems like if I'm seeing the
DISCOVER, then that's probably not my problem.

Any ideas?
