Leslie - can you clarify the note below? That is, in our current
configuration (Netview 5.1 *for NT* over frame relay), our routers show
frame relay virtual circuits as ip unnumbered interfaces (a correct
representation, I suppose, based on the router configuration info), but we
don't have the ability to actually monitor the state of the frame relay
circuit via Netview - one of our bigget gripes. So how far does Netview 5.x
(particularly for NT) support frame relay? Tx,
