Configuring the Interfaces on Which SNMP Requests Can Be Accepted (NSM Procedure)

You can limit the access of SNMP requests through specific interfaces by configuring the interfaces on which SNMP requests can be accepted. If you do not configure specific interfaces, SNMP requests entering the device through any interface are accepted, because by default, all device interfaces have SNMP access privileges.

To configure interfaces on which SNMP requests can be accepted in NSM:

  1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
  2. In the Devices list, double-click the device to select it.
  3. Click the Configuration tab.
  4. In the configuration tree, expand SNMP.
  5. Select Interface.
  6. Enter the parameters as specified in Table 74.
  7. Click one:
    • OK—To save the changes.
    • Cancel—To cancel the modifications.
    • Apply—To apply the SNMP settings.

Note: After you make changes to a device configuration, you must push that updated device configuration to the physical security device for those changes to take effect. You can update multiple devices at one time. See the Updating Devices section in the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide for more information.
