Actually, there is a new piece of NetView in V5.1 which MAY help, unless
what you have to have is actual statistics on what those ports are doing
(like you might get from a remote agent which updates a MIB).
NetView V5.1 for UNIX ships an executable that was available just in NT
called nvsniffer, which will discover what TCP ports your boxes are using
an build collections of them based on this information. It won't give you
stats, but it will tell you if they are working. You can even customize it
to use your won commands or scripts to test the health of these things if

This capability is not in Netview, but by using Nways, and RMON2 Probes you
may be able to.
