Monitoring Public Interface

L4 Transporter

Hi All,

We are managing the HA firewall over public facing interface. Now trying to Monitor the same interface by creating the Interface Mgmt Profile and allowing SNMP. But i can ping the interface SNMP polling is not working.

Is there anything else i need to configure? I can see 161 UDP is allowed on firewall.

Hi @Sanjay_Ramaiah ,


Have you enabled SNMP and defined your version, manager, and authentication? SNMP setup (Device -> Setup -> SNMP Setup) or creating a security policy?

Thanks for the reply Jay.

I can see SNMP is enabled on the interface. Created the interface management profile and allowed on it.

Check the logs to see if/why its getting blocked. If its allowed, the it could be the SNMP config on your PAN or monitoring device. Also please make sure that the snmp traffic is only allowed from a whitelisted IP address. Also remember that only SNMv3 is encrypted.
