Configuring SNMP subscriptions

It is the responsibility of the Appliance Administrator to configure Safeguard for Privileged Passwords to send SNMP traps to your SNMP console when certain events occur.

You can create a test to verify the SNMP configuration. For more information, see Verifying SNMP configuration.

To download Safeguard for Privileged Passwords MIB-module definitions from your appliance, enter the following URL into your web browser; no authentication is required:

To configure SNMP subscriptions

  1. Go to SNMP:
    • web client: Navigate to External Integration | SNMP.
  2. Click Add to open the SNMP subscription configuration dialog.
  3. Provide the following information:
    • Network Address: Enter the IP address or FQDN of the primary SNMP network server. Limit: 255 characters
    • UDP Port: Enter the UDP port number for SNMP traps. Default: 162
    • Description: Enter the description of the SNMP subscriber. Limit: 255 characters
    • Subscribe to All Events: Select this check box to subscribe to all events.
    • Events: Available when Subscribe to All Events is not selected, click Browse to select one or more SNMP event types. Use the Clear icon to remove an individual event from this list and select Remove All to clear all events from the list. The SNMP pane displays the number of events that you select, not the names of the events.
    • Version: Choose the SNMP version. Default: Version 2. Depending on the version selected, the following fields appear:
      • Version 1 and Version 2:
        • Community: Enter the SNMP community string, such as public. The SNMP community string is like a user ID, password that allows access to a device's statistics, such as a router. A PRTG Network Monitor sends the community string along with all SNMP requests. If the community string is correct, the device responds with the requested information. If the community string is incorrect, the device simply discards the request and does not respond.
  4. Click OK.

  3. On the SNMP settings pane:
    1. Select the SNMP configuration from the table.
