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 station. Procedure :- USE THE SNAP PROGRAM TO FIRST INSTALL NETWARE DOS REQUESTER (which provides IPX transport) AND THEN PROCEED TO SNMP AGENT INSTALLATION. 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 stpipx.com (or stpudp.com) 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 traps. 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 access. 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 SNMP. 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 = "firstname.lastname@example.org" 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.Download Driver Pack
After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.
Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).
