Hi all,

Some advice please,

Envir: NetView 6.0.1 and TEC 3.7 on solaris 2.6, SUN3500

I would like to monitor network devices with NetView but correlate SNMP
traps sent by these and other devices with the TEC through its SNMP
Adapter.
But... NetView and TEC (and the SNMP Adapter) are running on the same
system!
So, If this TEC SNMP Adapter is listening on port 162, NetView's trapd
cannot receive SNMP traps from SNMP Agents.
(and vice versa)
All other NetView features i want to use seem to perform ok.

As long as the TEC SNMP Adapter is started before NetView's trapd daemon,
this design seems to work fine.

Has anyone else done this?
Are there any drawbacks?
(both from the NetView and the TEC point of view)
Should or shouldn't i be doing this?

ThanQ, Pieter
