SNMP Integration

You can send SNMP traps for Wi-Fi Cloud events to one or more SNMP destination servers.

SNMP traps require an AP420 on your network configured in Cloud Integration Point (CIP) mode. For more information on CIP, see Wi-Fi Cloud Integration with Third-Party Controllers using CIP.

You must open port number 3852 in your network from the CIP-enabled AP to Wi-Fi Cloud servers.

To add an SNMP trap destination server:

  1. Open Manage.
  2. Select Configuration > ESM Integration > SNMP Integration.
  3. Click Add SNMP Trap Destination Server.
  4. Configure these options:
  • SNMP Trap Destination Server IP/Hostname — IP address or host name of the SNMP trap server.
  • SNMP Version — Select SNMPv2 or SNMPv3.
  • Port Number — Port number of the SNMP server to which traps are sent. The default is port 162.
  • CIP — Select a CIP-enabled WatchGuard AP on your network to communicate with Wi-Fi Cloud.
  • Enabled — Enable an SNMP server.
  • Username — Type a username to authenticate to the SNMP server.
  • Authentication Password — Type a password to authenticate to the SNMP server.
  • Authentication Protocol — Select the authentication protocol to use with the SNMP server.
