We have a problem where we have a machine on 2 LANS and want to monitor
when a LAN goes down via SNMP Get polling.

The machine has two LAN connections and two IP addresses,

10.49.254.1
10.49.255.1

When one of the LAN connections (10.49.254.1) is broken by removing the
LAN cable from the machine,

ping 10.49.254.1

times out and fails thus detecting the LAN failure.

However,

snmpget -v2c -c cctv 10.49.254.1 1.3.6.1.2.1.1.6.0

succeeds thus giving no indication of the fault we were trying to detect.

Why does this occur and is there a solution to make snmpget detect the
failure successfully?

Thanks,

Mark
