     It is correct that 192.168 is private address range and can not go
accross the Internet.  It is VERY BAD to have ANY duplicate ip addresses.
If these are on a host and only brought up in case of failure, I guess it
would work as long as only 1 address is up at a time.  If it is to load
share, I would think using a one DNS name on different IP addresses would
be better.

The network I work on has been customized with duplicate addresses of and  These addresses were assigned to
a total of eight platforms/hosts (i.e., four have addess of
four have address of  The network architect felt it was
okay to do this because 192.168.10 is considered a "private network" and
is not routed over the network.  The platforms with these addresses contain
additional network cards which are unique and which are what I really
want to monitor.

I have tried via a seedfile to get netmon to ignore these addresses
(i.e., ! but netmon still finds the
addresses...because of the other network addresses in these platforms, I

I see in the NetView Diagnsis Guide the  documented solution is to "Correct
problem in your network".  However, it would be more desirable if I could
just get NetView to ignore the duplicate addresses.  Does anyone know
another way to get NetView to ignore the duplicate addresses but still
monitor the
rest of the platforms?
