NV/6000,capture MAC address of adapters sending runt/malformed IP

ITEM: RTA000071330

A customer is trying to configure Netview/6000 V2.1 to capture IP               
Netbios and Appletalk runt/malformed frames to determine the MAC source         
address of where these packets originated.  I didn't think that the             
MIB definition was detailed to the point of malformed protocol specific         
frames and would require the use of a sniffer.                                  
Basically, need some sort of sample code using Netview API to capture           
malformed IP packets and to determine the MAC address it came from.             
Is this possible, if so, can we have some sample code ?                         
You can't use AIX NetView/6000 API to capture                                   
anything -- there is the snmp API. But, I don't think this is what you          
mean. So the answer is: nothing in the product allows you to do this.
