I don't follow you.  If your hosts are both pingable and SNMP-able through
the firewall then you should just be able to add them to the seed file and
they will be discovered.

I've been following this firewall discussion and have a similar issue. I
have a few hosts behind a firewall that are pingable and SNMP'able from
NetView. I don't have MLM. How do I get theese into NetView? Is it possible
without MLM?
Michel, You write that the pingable hosts outside the firewall got added bt
themselves. Just like that? And for the others? Did you add them

Hello Jane
I got a similar scenario, I just dont use a MLM at the moment. I got a few
hosts behind a Firewall, some are pingable and some not. The pingables got
added by themself but for the others I used $ before the IP-Adress in the
Seedfile. NetView didnt discover them alone till I added them over
In the next discover cicle it got them and checked it over SNMP (I got the
community name in the SNMP Configuration). Since then it is polling them
over SNMP, well but I still got some problems, they change their status to
unreachable after a few minutes (Polling time is 15min) but as soon as
NetView Polls them again they change back to reachable, I dont know yet why
they are changing to unreachable but at last I got them in NetView. Perhaps
it helps.
