This sounds like it is an issue with how the Agent scan is reporting on itself or how it is finding itself.

I recommend that you create a support ticket with our Customer Support team at GFI LanGuard Support.

We used to have this in a 3-subnet workgroup because of the lack of inter-subnet name service. With a domain, it's not longer an issue. What is the environment you have? Workgroup or domain?
