how do I connect Cisco equipment to Anturis?
For example - Cisco switches & firewall(ASA5505)
According to this guide it is possible to monitor SNMP devices without installing a private agent on them: http://community.anturis.com/forums/4-knowledge-base/topics/702-printers/
However you need a private agent in your network to monitor your Cisco devices.
Hi!You can connect your hardware using SNMP?
This description implies that I'm installing the Anturis SNMP agent unto device and thus it becomes visible.
I cannot install any agent on a Cisco ASA.
Can't I simply enable SNMP zone on the device and map towards your back end?
Are you saying that the private agent installed on a Windows or Linux computer is actually doing the SNMP monitoring? This is a problem for us, because we only permit SNMP queries from specific hosts, namely our Macintosh-based NMS and from Anturis. We don't enable general SNMP access from hosts on our LAN to our network devices, because the network devices are on a separate Management VLAN, which is a standard security practice.
