Glen,
If its a range of addresses you can add something like this to the seedfile:

!10.10.10.25-200 #Workstations

Or something like that. Im not sure how the "limit discovery" puts it
int the seedfile off the top of my head.

Hi Paul,

Good point.  I've tried adding them to the netmon.seed "limit discovery"
but they still keep getting discovered. Any ideas?

Glen,
Why discover them in the first place?

I have several remote access subnets (a few dial, some vpn) where remote users are allocated DHCP addresses. I do not want to manage these nodes and set them to unmanaged - but Netview keeps setting them


back to managed (and inevitably changes their state to down) - I suspect because it detects the connection as new (different MAC address perhaps) even though the IPs are the same. Is there way to permanently set a block of addresses to unmanaged?
Netview 7.1.4
