SNMP Smart Scan Settings

Enter the IP address of the SNMP enabled router you want to use for the SNMP scan.

In the SNMP read communities box, enter the proper read community string for that router. If an incorrect string is entered, WhatsUp Gold will not be able to scan the network.

Optionally, select the Windows credential that you want to use during discovery. These credentials are configured in the Credentials Library, and store Windows authentication information (username and password) for those devices that require a logon for monitoring. Click the Browse button next to this box to access the Credentials Library. You can select a specific credential, select all to try all credentials that are configured, or select none to ignore those devices that require you to log on. The credential that is successful is then associated with the device.
