All versions of NetView for UNIX support SNMP V2 traps at this time, including all versions of Linux. No versions for NetView for Windows do.
I am not certain just what else you expect me to do or say about your situation from my remote vantage point. It is very difficult to diagnose anything from an informal description and I am not permitted to take individual user problems from this forum. If you want someone to examine the output you got from mib2trap on the checkpoint MIB, then you will have to call Support and open a problem. The same is true for your Nokia issue. I have no idea why you aren't seeing the traps you expect from your anecdotal description. Such a diagnosis requires that someone examine hard data.

thanks again James
sad but true.. I was afraid that's the reason
linux version? does it support trap v2?
what about not receiving Nokia traps in Netview we did some tests
restarting the machine and I saw some snmptraps like Link up in ethereal
but couldn't see them in netview. another test was to send a snmptrap
from checkpoint firewall software whenever we have a specific firewall
rule (it was permit snmp read) and I received them in netview event log
as "enterprise specific trap from ENTERPRISES...." I guess that's
because we didn't configured any trap for checkpoint specific enterprise
mib (like I said I mib2trap returned zero traps from checkpoint mib file)
