  • 1.  how to change country allocations

    Posted 03-09-2019 13:00
    I´m buidling a Netsight System with different locations.
    unfortuanally some locations using "wrong" Ip Addresses becaus of historical reasons ...
    its not possible to change these addresses becaus there are large networks behind them.

    The Problem is that everything in Netsigh or analytics show these addreses as country "US" or
    internet.

    `How can i change the predefined address allocation into the netsight database ?
    Example : one of my customers use 128.20.0.0/16 as internal lan IP´s
    and i have to switch this region to germany and local addresses

    Regards
    Christian

    Hi Chris,

    so you want to change the default because the customer/engineer failed to understand what a IPv4 private address space is.?

    Please post a screenshot to get an idea of which view you are talking about.

    Hello Ronald,
    of course you are right. but we talk about mistakes a customer engineer did 25 years before ..
    and now you can not change the local ip network of an hospital with 3000 ip addresses...
    without a full shutdown or 100 day´s working

    Example here : local network 128.20.0.0/16

    All of reports and analytics windows show that only as "United States"

    Yes you are the greatest :-)

    but here the manual entry into the menu "Device endpoint location / IP Address " should overwrite this !

    Chris,

    you'd try it with a GTAC ticket because I think only the dev will know where the IP2country information is stored and if you are able to edit it.

    GTAC would be the second step .. i prefer first community way... i have better experiences with this as with GTAC

    I've also added the request on how to add fantasy countries/flags.
    e.g. 10.10.10.0/8 with a ExtremeNetworks flag and the name HQ1
