SNMP Services at your desktop

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an industry-standard
standalone protocol for communication between a network management console
and the network device that the console is to monitor.

The Desktop SNMP Agent provided with the NetWare Client allows you to manage
your NetWare clients from Compex FreedomView SNMP Management software and
other industry-standard SNMP management consoles. NetWare Client also provides
Desktop SNMP workstation support files.

The Desktop SNMP Agent supports MIB-II's System group, SNMP group,
and Interface group. The System and SNMP group provide
the SNMP management station with information about the workstation and
about the Desktop SNMP, while the interface group provides information about
your network connections.

The Desktop SNMP Workstation supports the Host Resources MIBs so that
the management console can view the resources of the client stations.

This document explains how to enable Desktop SNMP services on your computer
and how the SNAP program provided helps you to set up the SNMP options.
The SNMP services requires IPX or IP transport to be installed in your client

Procedure :-

The SNMP Agent installation will generate a sample net.cfg (old net.cfg file
will be saved as net.cpx) that contains the SNMP .VLM files and startnet.bat
files. The startnet.bat will load (or and then hrmib.exe.

After you have quit the installation utility, edit the net.cfg files to include
specific information like the sysname, syslocation etc and then replace
the net.cfg files with the newly edited file.

The client station after the SNMP Agent installation process will then be
ready to provide Desktop SNMP services to the management stations.

Desktop SNMP Option

This option is used to manage MIB-II support and communities for SNMP desktops
on Personal NetWare networks.

In the Desktop SNMP section of NET.CFG file, you can define three communities
type as described below:

A) Monitor Community

        Syntax          : monitor community = ["name | public | private"]
        Default         : public
        Examples        : monitor community = "public"

        Explanation     : Describes the read-only community. When the monitor
                          community is disabled, all read access is disabled.

B) Control Community

        Syntax          : control community = ["name | public | private"]
        Default         : public
        Examples        : control community = "public"

        Explanation     : Describes the read/write community. When the control
                          community is disabled, all write access is disabled.

C) Trap Community

        Syntax          : trap community = ["name | public | private"]
        Default         : public
        Examples        : trap community = "public"

        Explanation     : Describes the community name used for traps. When the
                          trap community is disabled, Desktop SNMP does not send

The above communities types can also be disabled. When a community type is
disabled, no management module can access information for that community.

The settings, depending on the community are:

        Enable 'Community Type' Community = [specified | any | off | ommitted]

where 'Community Type' can be monitor, control or trap.

Explanation for the various keywords:

        specified       : When set, the Desktop SNMP uses the specified
                          CommunityName for that community type. Desktop SNMP
                          defaults to "Public" if none is specified.

        any             : When set, any community string can be used to gain

        off             : When set, access for that community is disabled.

        ommitted         : When set, Desktop SNMP defaults to "Specified" for
                          that community and looks for a line defining a
                          CommunityName for the community. If no CommunityName
                          is specified, Desktop SNMP defaults to public.

MIB-II Support :

Desktop SNMP supports two MIB-II groups, system and SNMP which provide SNMP
management stations with information about your workstation and about Desktop

In the NET.CFG file, some information about your workstation can be defined
by using the following parameters:

a) sysName

        Syntax          : sysName = "name"
        Default         : None
        Examples        : sysName = "JAMES"

        Explanation     : Normally, this is the user name

b) sysLocation

        Syntax          : sysLocation = "location"
        Default         : None
        Examples        : sysLocation = "Richway Building"

        Explanation     : Normally, this is the location where your workstation
                          is located.

c) sysContact

        Syntax          : sysContact = "contact"
        Default         : None
        Examples        : sysContact = ""

        Explanation     : Normally, this is the contact address where help
                          can be obtained to maintain your workstation.

d) snmpEnableAuthenTrap

        Syntax          : snmpEnableAuthenTrap = [on | off]
        Default         : Off
        Examples        : snmpEnableAuthenTraps = on

        Explanation     : When set to ON, the Desktop SNMP will send a trap
                          message when someone without proper access tries to
                          use SNMP to get or change information that Desktop
                          SNMP manages.
