Issue/Introduction

In the DCS Manager, multiple agents show the same IP Address.

Cause

There is a device which performs Network Address Translation (NAT) between the DCS Manager and the Agents.

Resolution

By design, devices which perform NAT change the IP Address on traffic which passes through it. 

This is a security feature of NAT and is not a limitation of the DCS Product.

Because the communication between agent and manager is stateless, NAT does not cause problems for the DCS Product functionality.
