I use the agent (188.8.131.52 and 5.3.1) on many host including FreeBSD, Solaris (9 & 10), Linux (RHES 3 & 4) and Wndows (XP).
The patch for Linux works well, but is it planned to support other platforms?
The problem is that the agent answer with the physical interface even if calling on a virtual one.

The agent is configured to listen on "ALL" interfaces. (If the agent is configured to listen especialy to the virtual one it works, but I can't configure the agent to listen to the virtual interface.)
