Series 3: What is the procedure for configuring SNMP on my CradlePoint router?

If you are not sure what model CradlePoint router you have, please click here.

This article was written based upon firmware version 5.0.0.

Description:

Use the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Settings sub-menu to enable or disable the SNMP protocol over either the LAN, WAN or both interfaces. For security, you can also set the community names for both Get and Set SNMP requests. SNMP versions 1, 2 and 3 are currently implemented. The supported MIB is the standard RFC 1213 MIB as maintained by the IETF. Additional Cellular-router MIB elements are available through CradlePoint’s WIPIPE-MIB.

Directions:

To enable SNMP login to the Setup Pages of the CradlePoint (for assistance in logging into the Setup Pages click here).

  1. Click on the System Settings tab, then click SNMP Configuration.User-added image
  2. Check the box next to Enable SNMP                                                                     User-added image

 

Enable on LAN
Enable SNMP on the local LAN ports so that a local device can manage the router.

Enable on WAN
Enable SNMP on the external WAN port so that an external device can manage the router.

SNMPv1
SNMP version 1 is the most basic version of SNMP

SNMPv2c
SNMP version 2 has the same features as v1 with some additional commands.

SNMPv3
SNMP version 3 includes all prior features with security available.

Get Community String
Variable length string which allows access to read-only data within this community group. The community names should never be “public” or “private”. Community names are a maximum of 15 characters long. Names should contain at least one number and one capital letter. Access to the community name should be limited to the Administrator of realms.

Set Community String
Variable length string which allows access to read and write data within this community group. The community names should never be “public” or “private”. Community names are a maximum of 15 characters long. Names should contain at least one number and one capital letter. Access to the community name should be limited to the Administrator of realms.

Authentication Type
Select the authentication and encryption type that will be used when connection to the router.  These settings must match the configuration used on any SNMP clients.

Enable SNMP Traps
Enabling traps will allow you to configure a destination server, community, and port for trap notifications.  Trap notifications are returned to the server with SNMPv1

System Contact
