Niko, I ran across your case at a customer site today. Their internet
router
connects via unnumbered serial interfaces to the ISP, where we have no
snmp access. But they want to monitor the status of those interfaces at
least on their internet router. I would suggest using MLM on the local box
with APM to monitor the ifOperStatus of the serial interfaces. This will
create
an icon under the router that changes color, as a standin for the
interfaces.
I have done the same thing to monitor channel interfaces on 2216s.

Cordially,
