Thanks for the reply. I did have this set correctly, but it continued
to go after an alt interface. Before I received your msg, I deleted
both firewalls, bounced netview and rediscovered after coming back up -
worked perfectly. "Something" was going wrong, but what it was I'll
probably never know.
Thanks very much for you reply though!

[nv-l] ? about NV doing SNMP
12/16/2005 05:23 queries to PIX firewalls using
PM "wrong" interface
Please respond to
NV 7.1.4 on RH Linux AS 2.1 w/ FP3
I am discovering many new networks @ a new datacenter. I have a handful
of Cisco PIX 515 firewalls running 7.0.x code. I'm able to config SNMP
on the FWs and discover them - but a few seconds after discovery they
When I run a demand poll, it fails. I've trace the problem down to NV
trying to use a different interface (more hops away) on the firewall for
queries. If I browse map and query with nearest interface (as
configured in PIX) it works great. I've tried modifying the object
properties/general attributes/SNMP ipaddress and setting it to the
interface IP I want it to use, but still same results. I only have 1
entry in /etc/hosts for this device and though I use DNS there are no
entries for this firewall.
Any ideas on how I can force Netview to use a specific IP or interface?
I do want to monitor all the interfaces - but thru the "inside"
interface so I don't want to set the others to unmanaged.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated,
