SNMP: Enable Simple Network Management Protocol

Networking > SNMP /appliance header

The BeyondTrust Appliance B Series supports Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). SNMP is an Internet-standard protocol used for monitoring and managing networked devices.

This allows tools that collect availability and other statistics via the SNMP protocol to query the B Series Appliance for monitoring purposes.

To enable SNMP for this B Series Appliance, check Enable SNMPv2 or Enable SNMPv3. This enables an SNMPv2 or v3 server to respond to SNMP queries. Enter a value for the Read-Only Community Name, the System Location, and the IP Restrictions for IP addresses that are allowed to query this B Series Appliance using SNMP.

If no IP addresses are entered in the IP Restrictions field, all hosts are granted access.

If selecting SNMPv3:

  1. Enter a Username and Password.
  2. Select the Authentication Method of your choice from the dropdown menu.
  3. Check SNMPv3 Enable Privacy if you want to encrypt communications to the client.
  4. Enter a Privacy Password and select a Privacy Method.

Click Save Changes when done.
