G'day,

I have a problem that has cropped up in our current implementation of ous software for a customer.

Basically they have multihomed servers (dual network interfaces). What this means is that the servers at this customer site have two network addresses such as:

1. 192.168.x.x
2. 172.168.x.x

The servers communicate on one network and the client computers communicate on the other network.

The problem I have is that our SNMP Manager based software is bound to the 192.168.x.x network but our client software which is installed on all computers in the 172.168.x.x network cannot send traps to the manager software on the server.

The question is how do I force the manager to either:

1. Bind to a defined network adapter?
2. Bind to all network adapters so it can listen on all networks?

Cheers

You should be able to bind to the address of the computer on it's 172.168.x.x address using the Open method of the manager. Ex(vb6):
Manager.Open 162,"172.168.0.1"

Thanks,

Can I bind to multiple addresses so the manager listens on multiple interfaces?

Unfortunately no. You can have multiple managers running at once, one bound to each interface.
