Hi folks,

I am a wee bit confused about some information gathered in the NetView Red Books:

Chapter 2.6.2 Discovery Agent says:

-S Discover a secondary address for devices, such as routers or gateways, that will support secondary addressing.

is contrary to

Chapter 7.7 Problem Determination

Shared IP address
if netmon discovers two or more nodes with  the same IP address then it will begin to display and remove the icon. If this is the case it is wise to switch on the -S option on netmon which will allow shared IP addresses.

What does NetView, respectively support now, duplicate IP Addresses or secondary addresses??

Thanks for any help in advance!

Peter (just a wee bit confused)
