I don't know what to tell you guys.  I have 5.1.1 installed and I did just
what Gary did and it works only too well for me.
I  selected "IP Properties" and "Using Wildcards", clicked the IP Address
radio button, and used the Tivoli subnet  146.84.*.*, and then hit APPLY.
I got a huge number of hits.

I tried this a while back, I don't think it worked for
me either.  Because an IP address is normally
associated with a NIC, and which is a subcomponent of
a Node.  So if you AND the result of the IP Address
search with isNode, it won't work.  Right now, I don't
know of any way to create a smartset of Nodes using
strictly IP Addresses.

May be James and Leslie can enlighten us on how this
can be done, or just tell us that it's impossible.
