I've save this note for a while. Never tried it.
Other places, I know, dump the data to a relational database
and extract it using native PC methods. If you already have a
relational database in your enterprise, that would be the way to

Are you just wanting to display a NetView map on a web page (no
functionality)? Here's how I did it once upon a time. You will need the
"netpbm" package which is available from shareware sites such as

1) Dump the screen using "xwd". Position your map so that no other window
overlaps any portion of the map you want to dump. Enter "xwd -out
filename.xwd". Your cursor will become a crossbar. Click once on the map
and it will dump the screen in xwd format to the filename.xwd file.
2) Convert the xwd file to ppm format using the netpbm "xwdtopnm" utility:
"xwdtopnm filename.xwd > filename.ppm".
3) Convert the ppm file to gif format using the netpbm "ppmtogif" utility:
"ppmtogif filename.ppm > filename.gif".
4) You may now include the gif image in a html document.

I have a question.  There are people here who want to see the graphs
produced by NetView, but they do not have access to the AIX Server on which
it resides.  I can use xnmgraph to produce an .xwd file, but I need to know
how to make it viewable by the rest of the world - how do I make it
as a windows-recognizable graphic?

Or is there a Windows tool to read these files?
