You are correct that most third party apps will not work over the web interface.

The instructions on setting up a NetView client are contained in the
Installation and Configuration Guide, including information on how to make the
decsions for or against NFS maps and how to set them up (you click the box on
the installation menu).

Subject:  NFS Mounting Map for Clients

I will be migrating to NV 5.1 on AIX 4.3, and have a requirement to retain
management of the map at the server, allowing the client to only do
monitoring and not have to worry about maintaining the map.  We have several
3rd party apps (Cabletron SPMA, Network Associates SniffMaster for X, etc)
running on the server.  From the Admin Guide, it sounds like those apps
would not work over the web interface.  Is this true?  Is it truly just a
scaled-down, Netview-only interface?  If so, I believe my only recourse is
to NFS mount the map at the server, and export to the clients.  Are there
any procedures on how to do this?  I am familiar with the NFS mount
procedure, but not so sure how to ensure that Netview knows how to find the
remotely-mounted map.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
