I'm just about positive that you cannot. The support for unnumbered is
designed for serial, but generally works with any type of interfaces, as
long as the thing on the other end can be discovered. If the far device
has no addressable interfaces, it won't be discovered. So neither
unnumbered interface will be drawn. You could tell the netmon to
use SNMP polling for the Paradyne, but it won't draw the unnumbered
interface so it won't report status on it. All you could do would be to
manually add an object to stand in for those interfaces and run a
program of your own to manage them. Or... you could use the
APM/MLM function to monitor the Oper status of that particular
instance in the interface table. APM will create an object to represent
it, and its status will propogate to the parent node, the Paradyne.

i'm running netview 6.0.1 on AIX 4.3.3 and i have some specific devices
in my network (Paradyne DSL) that i want to check the status of their

These devices have only Ethernet IP Address (an Ethernet Interface) but
they also have interfaces that they are not being discovered by netview
because they don't have an ip address.

What do i have to do to check these interfaces? (at the other end of the
interfaces i have my customers vpns, in other words these devices are
bridg devices and they aren't pingable). The only way to get the status
is to check ifAdmin & ifOper status....
How can i configure this within Netview?

Thank you in advance.
