That's a good point Ken, but it is much less of a problem now than it used 
to be. 

The later releases of NetView (7.1) have code in them to select 
approximate colors if Netscape or some other big color hog is already 
running.  You now get a pop-up which warns you that approximate colors are 
in use.  It's a whole lot better than the blacked-out  out stuff that used 
to happen before.  And most of the time the shades of the approximate 
colors are very, very close to what you would otherwise see.

To mention one other Netscape caveat, when you invoke it from the CLI, you 
will want to 
use the "-install" option if running on a UNIX system.  By providing the 
"-install" option, Netscape will 
not steal available colors from NV/6000 or other applications that may be 

$ Netscape -install 

Hope this helps.

Each user has to be able to invoke Netscape from the command line.  When 
they can do that, then NetView will invoke it just fine.

The environment for NetView GUI is not distinct from the users who 
implement it.  Each user who starts the NetView GUI must have the path to 
the netscape executable in his or her PATH and each user must export the 
Netscape environment variable MOZIILLA_HOME=<full path to netscape> .  You 

set these in each user's .profile 

Hope this helps

AIX 4.3.3 ML10 
Netview 7.1.2 
I´d like to know how to configure Netview to call the Netscape ? 
I had to re-install the Netscape and now it was installed in another 
directory. It´s probable that Netview calls Netscape from a path different 

of the actual one.
Where can I configure the actual path of Netscape ?? 
Thanks in advance
