[mrtg] MRTG and web page refresh

The routers2 autorefresh depends very much on how the page is generated.  How are you linking in to Routers2 from the external pages?  If it is by using embedded images, or a 'naked' graph page (no header or menu) then the autorefresh is either not possible or is disabled.  If you are using the URLs generated by clicking the 'bookmark' button, however, the generated HTML should autorefresh at the appropriate frequency (the refresh code is hidden in the HTTP headers of the graph pane).  Otherwise, you'll need to code the HTML to refresh yourself.
Another thing to note is that your web server must accept the refresh headers from the CGI but that shouldnt be an issue with most web servers.

Subject: [mrtg] MRTG and web  page refresh

I am using routers2 as my primary front end to MRTG.  I have some other
apps that use the links inside MRTG to populate web pages for the NOC
and other departmental views.  The issue I am having is these web pages
are not refreshing themselves automatically.  I did not add the Refresh
option into the cfg files because the default is 300 seconds.  I have
added this option and set the refresh rate to be 300 seconds but no
change.  Anyone have any idea what could be causing the issue?  Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
