Thread-topic: [nv-l] Discover & poll node only with snmp

I do not have that configuration here myself (yet :-)) so I've done no
testing but... Perhaps you could add the routers to your seed file using
the '$' prefix to use SNMP (and not ICMP) - then add the routers to the
map using the 'loadhosts' command.

Hi everybody,

I was wondering if there is a way to configure NetView
to discover & poll a node with snmp when icmp is
For example i have a NetView server behind a FireWall
and a couple of routers outside the FireWall but under
my administration. The FireWall permits snmp requests
from inside but denies icmp. Can i add those routers
into my map?
Because i have the impression that NetView needs at
first to ping a router to discover and THEN uses snmp
polling. I hope i'm wrong ;-)
Thank you all in advance
