This dialog controls the send SNMP trap options.



Send SNMP Trap Dialog


SNMP Version


Specify the SNMP version here.



Internet Protocoltype


Select the desired protocol type. IPv4 and IPv6 are available. The IPv6 protocol needs to be properly installed in order to be used. Note that one Service can only handle IPv4 or IPv6, so if you want to use both protocols, you will need to create two separate services.



Protocol Type


You can select to listen on UDP or TCP protocol for SNMP Traps.



Agent receiver


Specify the agent that has to receive the SNMP trap. Please note that specifying a host name can cause the SMTP probe to fail if DNS name resolution fails (for example due to a failing DNS server). To avoid this, specify an IP address. You can either use an IPv4, an IPv6 Address or a Hostname that resolves to an IPv4 or IPv6 Address.




This port is to be probed. Please see your server's reference for the actual value to use. For example, mail servers typically listen to port 25 and web servers to 80.




Specify the SNMP community to which the messages belong too.


SNMP V1 Specific Parameters


Under this group box you can see the parameters related to SNMP version 1.


Enterprise OID


Specify the enterprise object ID here. You can use Browse option to select your OID. If you click the Browse link, the screen similiar to shown below is appeared:



MIB Browser


You can select your MIB here.


Generic Name


You can specify the generic name of the trap which can be one of the coldStart(0), warmStart(1), linkDown(2), linkUp(3), authenticationFailure(4), egpNeighborLoss(5) and enterpriseSpecific(6).


Specific Type


You can define an additional code for the trap. It is also an Integer value.


Agent IP Address


The SNMPv1 Agent Address field can be set to other IP Addresses here.

Hostnames will automatically be resolved if possible. By default we are

using the %source% property.


SNMP Variables


These are the variables to send in the SNMP Trap. If you know the trap codes, you can enter them manually, otherwise use the inbuild SNMP MIB Browser. Under this group box, you see the following fields:


Variable OID


OID of the SNMP Trap. Use the inbuild SNMP Mib Browser for a list of known and available OIDs.


Variable Type


The variable type of the variable, usually OCTETSTRING or INTEGER. Depending on this type, the Variable value needs to be formatted correctly (Like for the type IPADDR).


Variable Value


The value of the Variable. It needs to be formatted depending on the variable type.



Please Note:


The "Send SNMP Trap"-Action is capable of sending all kinds of Traps. You can choose the whole variety of the MonitorWare Products' Properties as a value for the messages. With that, you can send SNMP Traps to the Windows internal SNMP Agent or any other device that is able to receive SNMP Traps. Of course you have full enterprise support, too. This gives you the possibility to involve every machine on your network into your security plan or whatever purpose it should serve.
