Hello Leslie,
First of all i run the locate route and i always reach the routers directly.

there are no other nodes inbitween.
Our routers are Cisco's 2500 and 1600 running Ios v12.04.
there are 2 f/r lines and 1 point to point (HDLC).
As i understand the problem the objects exist but cann't be viewed on the
map - i dont know why but when i try to add the connection manually i always
keep getting the massege " Objects already exist ..selection name should
I deleted those objects once to create a new map ( with a seed file)
i run the ovtopofix command but maby it didnt delete it.
How can i for sure delete an object and let netview discover it properly?
Greetings ,Oren
P.S: i'm running netview ver. 4 on AIX v4.1.
