Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an application layer protocol that is used to manage and monitor a network. SNMP is used by network administrators to manage network performance, detect and correct network problems, and collect network statistics. A SNMP managed network consists of managed devices, agents, and a network manager. Managed devices are devices that are capable of the SNMP feature. An agent is SNMP software on a managed device. A network manager is an entity that receives data from the SNMP agents.
The objective of this document is to explain how to configure SNMP on the WAP4410N Wireless-N device.
• WAP4410N Wireless-N
Step 1. Log in to the web configuration utility and choose Administration > Management. The Management page opens.
Step 2. Click the desired radio button in the SNMP v1 & v2 field.
• Enabled — Enables SNMP features on the access point. Both SNMPv1 &v2 are supported.
• Disabled — Disables SNMP features on the access point.
Step 3. Enter the name of the contact person in the Contact field, such as the name of a network administrator for the access point.
Step 4. Enter the name in the Device field that you wish to assign to the access point.
Step 5. Enter the location of the access point in the Location field to specify where the access point is located.
Step 6. Enter "public" in the Get Community field, which allows a remote device to retrieve read-only information from an access point. SNMP agents should accept request messages only if the community string in the message matches its community name. Therefore, the management application should always communicate with the agents along with the associated community name. The default SNMP community names are public for read-only GET operations.
Step 7. Enter "private" in the Set Community field, which allows a remote device to read information from a device and to modify settings on that access point. SNMP agents should accept request messages only if the community string in the message matches its community name. Therefore, the management application should always communicate with the agents along with the associated community name. The default SNMP community names are private for read-write SET operations.
Step 8. Enter “public” or “private” in the SNMP Trap-Community field, corresponding to read only or read/write messages. A remote host computer receiving trap messages or notices sent by the access-point will be able to read or read/write these messages depending on your selection.
Step 9. Click the desired radio button in the SNMP Trusted Host field.
• Any IP Address — Choose this if you want to allow any IP address to access the access point. If you choose this, access is given to all users that connect to the access point.
• IP Address — Enter the desired IP address range to access the access point. If you choose this, only the particular range of IP addresses specified will receive access to the access point.
Step 10. Enter the desired IP address in the SNMP Trap-Destination field, so that the remote host that will receive the trap messages.
Step 11. Click Save to save the settings.
