Can't Trace Own IP Address in Domino Console?

Hi All,

I have a problem, i cant trace my own ip address on my Lotus 6.5.1 server? I have 3 NIC's (2 NIC on class C, and 1NIC on class B segment)... 1 of the NIC in class C is the one that i cant trace on my server console? The 2 NICs, i can trace with no problem. The error shows:

> trace x.x.200.101

Im using 3NIC's because the 1 NIC is used for Cluster network, the 2 NIC's is for my LAN & WAN. I've already put this on my NOTES.INI settings:

PORTS=ClusterNet,TCPIP,TCPIP2
TCPIP=TCP, 0, 15, 0
TCPIP2=TCP, 0, 15, 0
TCPIP_TcpIpAddress=0,x.x.0.10:1352
TCPIP2_TCPIPAddress=0,x.x.200.101:1353
ClusterNet=0,x.x.200.9:1352


Also, on my Domino directory/Configurations/Server Doc/Ports tab: The setting is as follows

Port      Protocol      Notes Network      Net Address      Enabled
TCPIP      TCP      TCPIP Network      server1                   ENABLED
ClusterNet      TCP      TCPIP Network      server1                   ENABLED
TCPIP2      TCP      TCPIP Network      x.x.200.101             ENABLED


Is it ok if i just put ip address not the host name on my TCPIP2 settings?

Im just wondering, WHY cant i trace my own ip address(x.x.200.101) on the domino server console? Although i can ping all the 3NIC's ip addresses + the hosts name.

*btw, my machine is on AIX 5.2


Please help!

thank you vry mch!!!

I suppose Trace will always use port 1352, and you use port 1353 on that NIC. You could try to use, from a Domino server console:
    Trace port !!! servername
0

show port tcpip
