Thanks Gunnar for the reply. Well I understand how to create the snmp trap monitor and stuff. Right now we are currently trying to have snmp traps sent from another monitoring application to SiteScope. How do I know if the trap was sent or not as of right now there is no snmptrap.log or something?
I have been trying to send snmp traps to SiteScope but am not sure if SiteScope is receiving it.
i am unable to send a snmp trap test message after configuring the default snmp preferences. I entered snmp version 2 but where in the preferences does it ask for an OID? And sorry if this may sound like a stupid question, but what OID would I enter?
Ok well let me take that back. I got it working so that our windows sitescope instance is receiving the traps, however, i am still having trouble with our linux sitescope instances receiving the traps.
Well when one of the SiteScope instances sends an snmp trap message to another SiteScope instance, I am able to see the message in /var/log/messages. However I am unable to see the snmp trap message in the SiteScope snmptrap.log file.
So I am not sure if it is blocked by a firewall or something.
Ok finally got it working. For some reason maybe port 162 must be accessed by root, so after changing the port to 1993, it worked. Now I am able to send snmp traps to both my linux and windows sitescope instances. Thanks,
