XBrowser does not handle 2 IP networks

 
I have configured 2 IP networks to be able to handle multiple LAN which needs to be separated from each other. However I want to use my desktop to connect to both LANs.

My IP configugation is
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 172.16.251.96
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.17.116
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 172.16.0.1

The XBrowser will only list xdm broadcasting servers on the 192.168 network and not any from the 172.16 network. If I specify the IP address I can use Xstart to start a session to my 172.16 servers, so that is not any problem. The problem is that I have many more servers on the 172 network and it is time comsuming to enter all server IP addresses under XBrowser properties (65000 entries, of which I use a couple of 100 servers).

Running XManager 2.0, build number 763

Is there any way to make XBrowser query the 172 network? (If I only have the 172 network configured it will show all my Unix servers on that network)

In Xbrowser, add the following entries to Tools > Options > New Address.

192.168.17.255

172.16.255.255
