We can't always control the IP address numbering at remote sites that need to be monitored. I would like to be able to add an additional NIC or just an additional IP address to the SolarWinds server, and assign devices to use one source IP or the other for communicating with that device. Right now we're either implementing a brand new management LAN or NAT'ing to ensure that all remote networks are unique, but it can get ugly. It would be much better if we could have traffic destined for "site A" go out from NIC#1, and traffic destined for "site B" go out from NIC#2, where the IP ranges for site A and B are the same.
