The web browser does not offer any restrictions of this kind.  Once you are
in, you are in and all functions are avilable.  5.1 will not change this,
it just uses NetView security rather than UNIX security to determine who
gets in.

Subject:  MIB Browsing vis WEB browser (NV AIX V5)

We need to allow our customers access to the MIB browsing via the WEB
interface of Netview V5, but ONLY to their part of the network.
Unfortunately Netview will allow ANY user to MIB browse any router as long
as you know the IP address (at least that is what I have seen in V5, don't
know about V5.1) and it will even provide the Community name for the

Is there any way of restricting the access by using an IP-addressing
range/list?? , in Netview or in Tivoli???

Or are there any alternative solutions ?? (apart from setting up a MLM or
Netview NT in the customers network).

Most grateful for any replies.
