Thread-topic: I can't make netview stop pinging......

I have been contacted by our firewall folks. Our development netview server is pinging a vendors network trying to do a discovery.


I have added the subnet 192.168.*.1-100 to the netmon.seed file using the Limit by IP Address -> Exclude panel.


I have configured the netmon daemon setup option “Range of automatic discovery” to “Local Subnet Only”.


Netview’s address is so should it now only be discovering 42.108.*.* addresses?


Netview is still pinging 192.168.*.* every couple of minutes. It looks like it is trying a range of addresses in the same pattern every time.



What else do I need to disable? I assume this has come about because we have finally been given an smnp community name for a couple of our development Cisco routers to test monitoring our Cisco network. Would netview have picked up a 192.168.*.* address from the router tables from one of these devices and is now trying to discover that subnet?


I am not allowed to run NETVIEW again until I get this ship shape. L
