Well, on Windows you would have to configure the trapfrwd daemon to forward
traps to your AIX machine, and then configure that to send to TEC using a
ruleset.  If you already had the AIX to TEC link working, then yes, it
probably would have been easier just to forward  the traps from Windows to

But that all begs the question, "Why on earth would someone who has a
working NetView on an AIX system move to Windows?"  Not only  is the effort
high, it's like trading in your SUV for a subcompact.  It's fine if you
want to save gas (or cost) but you cannot tow nearly as much with the
subcompact.  Anyone who needed the robustness and versatility of NetView on
AIX will find the Windows version very constraining.

I applied the Fix and I'm back in business. Very much appreciate your
help.. One last question though..
Would it be easier If i had to forward traps to my netview on AIX and take
it from there to TEC as I'm already doing it.?
Just a thought.. Have  a good weekend..
