i just installed zabbix,i liked it,i have to ask one question about it, in discovery status it olny shows computers out of ip ranges which are on,i need all of them in the list to monitor them ,

second when i try to create a host manually,i only want to see host is up or down on the basis of ping,but there is no option there for icmp/ping while creating a host,it only shows ip address and port....help needed...thanks
