Re: rogue IP address

Did LANguard give you a MAC address of the offending NIC?  If so you can
look for the station that way if you have documented them.  You could also
send an Administrative email out to all users specifying how to locate the
MAC address on  the OS they run and have them email you back.  When you find
the MAC you have your user.

Good luck,

Hi,
    I do not know your switch, or your network layout, but generic method
which works in most cases is to set up a fast/"large data size" ping to said
IP address.

Look for the fastest blinking light.

I know it is not scientific, and probably offends some people but it does
work. (For up to a few hundred ports).

- Assumes flat network.
- Better to do it at a 'quiet' time, the effect is more noticeable
- Assumes that you are aware of your important ports (servers/routers etc.)
which normally have high load anyway.
- Do NOT do it if network performance is critical, you can overload the best
of switches with ICMP.
- Maybe there are a few ports which look like possibilities, but at least
you
have narrowed them down.

Someone on our network assigned an IP address to their own system without

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!
