Thanks Glen!

I don't know what exactly happens with the Internet Sharing - but I  
turned it on, and the command line scanning program is finally able to  
see the device and report an IP address for it.

I guess this enables the airport base station to assign act as a DHCP  
server and assign an address to a connected device?  Does internet  
sharing set up a bridge between devices connected to the Mac by other  
ethernet ports, and the airport base?  In any case, that single change  
has enabled detection of the device.
