Oren, there can be a number of reasons why Netview will
not draw the connections between routers, and most of them
boil down the the agent on the routers failing to provide the
necessary (RFC-compliant, standard) information about those
interfaces. Tell us more: What kind of routers are they, what
level of code are they running, what kind of interfaces are they?
What level of Netview are you running, and what options have
you turned on for netmon? Are you sure there are no missing
nodes between the disconnected routers? Try Test....Locate
Route via SNMP to see what the path should be. If you are
on V4, you will have some trouble with Frame Relay. If they
are Cisco frame relay below 11.2, you also will have trouble.
If they are Bay using circuitless IP, they also cannot be connected.
Your 'fake' connection is probably being reset to the 'real'
arrangement by netmon during its daily configuration poll.

I'm having a strange problem with my nv6k ( v4) map.
All the lateset routers which i have connected to our net are discovered
without a line connection to the main router . Once i manually add this
line ( of course with the exac ip map definitions) the line is added but
disapear after a day or 2, and further more if i try to add another line
the first one disapear...
I have 4 routers with this problem .
any ideas ?
