I've no idea where to post this, there seems to be no plain vanilla
networking forum, so bear with me.

Someone, presumably with a laptop, plugged it into our network today. It
appears it had a manually set IP address that was the same as our Groupwise

Everyone's GW client or WebAccess Connection immediately exited, presumably
because they were suddenly talking to the wrong computer.

I found the TCPIP error messages on the server console when I went to see
what the hell happened.


I've got the MAC address and I'll try and track it down.
Any ideas how to stop this sort of thing happening, it resolved almost at
once - or seems to have. I was able to get back in about 30 seconds later
without a problem.
