Re: rogue IP address

Someone on our network assigned an IP address to their own system without
my knowledge.  Using LANguard network scanner, the best I can tell is that
it's a Linux box.  The port-to-IP mapping table on our Asante switch
doesn't see to work correctly.

Any suggestions on tracing down that system that is associated with the IP
is appreciated!

Assign that IP to another box and wait to see who calls in for tech support because of the conflict.
