Sorry if this has been covered before.  I am new to
the list and to NetView.  

I am trying to find a solution to forward snmpv2 traps
from within a DMZ (firewall)
to my NetView server.  These particular traps are from
Veritas Cluster Server.  I initially
attempted to use TEC's snmpagent, which doesn't
support snmpv2.  I then 
noticed that our networking group had moved to HP
Openview and we had a NetView 
license I could use.  After working with NetView for a
few days, I was impressed by 
what capabilities it had and by the fact that it does
support snmpv2.  I figured I could
place an MLM in each DMZ with ports 161 and 162 opened
back to the NetView server
and have a management window into each DMZ.

After several weeks of meetings convincing the
firewall folks that having the ports opened was a good
I install and configure the MLM, only to discover that

Tivoli support suggested installing a Netview server
within each DMZ or opening ports 161 and 162
from each DMZ client back to the NetView server....

Would anyone have a "reasonable" suggestion for how to
forward these events?

Perhaps HP Openview has a solution....
