IMHO - You need to be able to determine the IP to be able to monitor the device.

Can you use DNS to resolve the name to the proper IP address?  If not,  you
could create a seperate config for each IP address that the device could
possibly have, but I doubt this would be very useful.


thanks for reply

listen i will explain by this Example

Say that you have a leased line and you know the router ip address  like   that i can monitor
but if i get from this IP a NAT and so i will have some PCs
with    (virtual IP address)  like and  ETC... so can i
monitor that i don't know how if it is possible.

and also if i have a  pipe line and this pipe have NATing also how can i
monitor that Pipe line cause i cannot do so



-----Original Message-----

If you assign a secondary IP address to the interface like ( or - you should be able to monitor it with MRTG.  Assuming have snmp
enabled with proper community strings & are querying the appropriate OIDs.

 I'm not sure what you mean by 'virtual IP address.'

Please give more detail if you expect more help.

Can anybody please tell me how can I monitor a virtual IP from MRTG Server.
i mean can MRTG monitor Nating

 the server have a real IP like  and I want to monitor a
router or Pipe Line but under virtual like or

so how can I monitor that.

thank you in advance
