You can generate any trap you like using snmptrap, and you can use a ruleset to
kick off  snmptrap using an Action node.  It is the rest of your note which
confuses me .

What's a NIC?  Does netmon poll it now?  Because there is no way you can stop
netmon from sending a Node down or Interface down,  if it is down, unless you
unmanage it.   What trap are you thinking will drive this ruleset?

I only want to generate a node down if NIC1 AND NIC2 AND NIC3 AND NIC4 are
down. Can someone tell me if this do-able with a ruleset ? Each NIC
interface will have
a different ip address.
