Firmware issues related to NIC manfucaturer, resulting in an error


Product: Flowmon probe

Version: FOS 12.2.4 ISO

When the 'Start' button for the monitoring port is clicked from the GUI screen, the following message is displayed and it cannot be started.
Can not find proper port ID, assigned default. NIC ports can mismatch!

I rebooted Flowmon, but this did not improve the situation."
