What is Farallon?


EDIT: This first problem is solved, thanks to the following post:

I just intalled Fedora Core 3. It's the first time I really use Linux intensively so I'm a real newbie. The problem I have is: surfing to a website is extremely slow. Now I've logged my traffic with ethereal, and this is what I get
  0.000000 ->  DNS Standard query AAAA
  5.002936 ->  DNS Standard query AAAA
  10.003235 ->  DNS Standard query AAAA

Everything seems ok te me except one thing. I make 3 DNS requests. If you take a look at it, that takes around 90% of all the time, so I guess there has to be a DNS problem. Do I have to adjust some changes anywhere (and if so where?).
My network configuration is the following: I'm behind a residential gateway (ip-adress
As primary dns server I have

I also checked my routing table and everything seems fine (default to residential gateway)

But this question isn't:

And then one extra question: When logging with ethereal I saw that there was some 'thing' scanning all of the ip-addresses in my subnetwork with an ARP request. The thing was called Farallon. Is this something strange or just a simple application that runs on every Linux machine.

google("Farallon linux") -> it looks like `Farallon' is an ethernet card; could it be some kind of driver? ...
