Ghost IP Address

Unanswered Question

I just took over a LAN/WAN structure and this is

something that I've never seen before.


When pinging across these two subnets, I'm getting

an extra IP address for the main router:


Main Office: (c3620)

Eth0: 10.0.0.1

Serial1/1: 10.0.5.2 <<---PPP to 10.0.5.1


Remote Office:(c1601)

Eth0:10.0.6.1

Serial0: 10.0.5.1 <----PPP to 10.0.5.2


Starting in the main office's subnet, I'm pinging:

10.0.0.1

10.0.5.2

10.0.5.1

10.0.5.3 <---where is this coming from?!?!??

10.0.6.1


However, when doing a tracroute to an IP in the

10.0.6.0, the 10.0.5.3 IP does not show up.



If I telnet to this address (10.0.5.3), I get the

logon prompt for the main router.

Why is this happening?



TIA,


Mark

Is the WAN subneted? if yoy have subneted 10.0.5.0 to /30, then .3 is your broadcast address, that might explain my you receive an answer on that ping.

I have a same problem in my network.One ip address which is assigned to pix, are localised to switch and create a conflict and disturb our network.When we reboot the switch it disappear and after it appear again.


I think it is a ghorst ip address.How we can resovl it ?
