I am not sure what you are doing with this test. Why do you mention using
three different ip's with -B ?  You are supposed to supply the broadcast
address with -B for your network.  What is the broadcast address of your
network? You don't have to supply the -B option.
What command do you actually run for looking up the server on TEST 4?
