Well, the simplest explanation would be that the Netview system
is not able to talk SNMP to the node. It must use SNMP to determine
that the two interfaces are on the same box. It is probably the case
1) SNMP is not enabled on that device, OR
2) SNMP is enabled but an access list excludes the Netview server, OR
3) SNMP is enabled, the server is allowed, but the server is using the
There is also the remote possibility that Netview is taking its cue from
your name resolution. Sometimes if you resolve both of the addresses
to different names, and put both of the names in the seedfile, or both
addresses, Netview will start with the assumption that they are two
different devices. It is best to put only one of the addresses in the
seedfile. Netview will find the others by itself.
Once Netview sees the device correctly, the Nways will recognize it.
Let us know how you make out with the Nways V2 for NT. I have not
seen it yet.

Now, I was install Nways NT v.2 which it's run on NetView 5.1 for NT.
The problem is when the NetView discover device if it found multi IP on the
same device it create 1 symbol per IP that is incorrect. I don't know that
is the developer intention or not, and how can I do if I want it to create 1
symbol per device.
