Just to verify, make sure you can do those two without specifying a
community string on the command line.  This ensures NetView is using
the right community string.

I've fought with such problems in the past myself...often scratching
my head as to why it was occuring because everything looked fine, yet
no data ever showed up. 

At least in the AIX version, there's a log file that's pretty helpful
for debugging this though.  /usr/OV/logs/snmpCol.trace

You may have to toggle it on. In AIX, that's done through
serversetup.   YMMV, and I am not familiar with the windows product.
