Ping replys with nothing connected? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, im having an issue with TCP/IP and this is a new one for me,

    I have 3 ip addresses on my LAN (static) which are replying even when i unplug them. I have my printer 192.168.0.200 unplugged and it still reply to ICMP requests?

    Also, setup my apple TV with 192.168.0.230 and after changing it i couldnt get the IP setup with .130 again as theres an IP conflict. If i set the IP to 192.168.0.231 it connects fine.,

     

    Its like its remembering the IP addresses and im pretty sure ive run into this kind of thing before.

    I have a managed D-Link DES-3226S switch with port mirroring setup? i cant remember what this is called lol

     

    Thanks!

  • You can check onthe DHCP service on the router or server, depending where it is installed, an look at the address leases and reservations. Next use an IP scanner tool like Advanced IP Scanner to check your subnet for any additional hosts. Let us know what you find.

  • Hello,

    Looks like that there is more than three IP addresses in use in your network.

    I would also agree with Marius. If you have a DHCP server, you can look at the address leases for more information about given IP addresses by this DHCP server. Here, you will have more information as you will find the IP address that had been given and the MAC address of the host that received the IP address.
