You would have needed to have a comm trace running a week ago. :-)

Thanks Rob.

I am not authorized to the CMNTRC commands. I used the second option
you presented. Network guy thinks that nothing is using 172.x.x.x. I
found three connections. A bit tedious. Using the CMNTRC commands
would be helpful. But, won't they only show an active connection? Is
there any way to see a connection that was made maybe a week ago?

If the local address is * then that port is binding to all your
interfaces. You may get by with just one interface.
Keep using option 5 until you hit ones beginning with 172.

If the networker is just trying to clear up the port, you could move the
interface off of the one NIC on to the other. Initially sounded strange
to me to have multiple subnets on one NIC but it's doable.

Some time back, a second network card was added to our i. One card is
on 172.x.x.x and the other is on 10.x.x.x.

Most activity is now off the i, compared to what was there last October.

Network guy wants to shut down the 172.x.x.x address.

Is there a way to determine if that address is still used by somebody?
Even if not at a particular moment?

The other option is to shut down the 172.x.x.x and wait for the calls
to come in.
