|Trap Console Remote Access|
Remotely accessing the Unbrowse SNMP Trap Console
A few of our users have deployed Unbrowse SNMP hanging off a network tap. These taps are strategically located in front of network management stations so that all traps can be collected by Unbrowse SNMP with almost no effort. A problem is that now you need to make a trip to the data center to check out the trap console. A remote access capability has been lacking for a while now.
Starting from Release 1.5.1, you can log in to Unbrowse SNMP via a standard web browser and view the SNMP traps. Multiple users in your organization can view traps simultaneously from a single Unbrowse SNMP instance.
This article explains how to get this working.
Step 1: Enable this featureThis remote access functionality is possible due to a built in special purpose webserver. This is disabled by default. To enable it:
1. Go to Tools->Customize
2. Go to the Advanced tab
3. In the Miscellaneous section, scroll down and locate the Trap Console group
4. Select the "Enable Remote HTTP Access" option
Step 2: Run the trap console as usualYou can load an existing trap database or capture live traps. Nothing special to be done here.
Step 3: Access remotelyThe webserver listens on port 12801 by default. Point your webbrowser to http://a.b.c.d:12801 and you will get a list of current traps (latest one first)
