Duplicate IP / Gratuitous ARP




Can PRTG be configured to somehow monitor specific networks, subnets or VLANS for potential IP address conflicts? While in good practice, this should *never* occur, I recently ran into an issue where it did - and it took our engineers far too long to locate the source.

I would like to configure PRTG to somehow watch for this on my networks. How can that be achieved?

I'm very sorry but at this time, we do not offer any IPAM utilities. See KB 42373
