Phantom IP wont go away??
a real strange one here.
The story starts with my eth1 being given an IP of 192.168.1.2 by the router via DHCP. It worked fine. Sometime later it then got 192.168.1.7 and continues to get this. At one point I reserved 192.168.1.2 in the router for my eth1 but deleted it a few days later. Now I have a problem with SMB4K which can see every machine on the network except itself. It thinks it's still 192.168.1.2 which it is not. I don't get a reply from ping for 192.168.1.2 but do for 192.168.1.7 which is what the router reports my eth1 is on.
Turning on tcpdump I get the following:-
07:02:02.602579 arp who-has tony.turnbui.com tell tony2.homeip.net
07:02:02.602694 arp reply tony.turnbui.com is-at 00:11:5b:70:60:41

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this phantom 192.168.1.2 please?
