12.1. Configuration
To configure the SNMP Trap function, proceed as follows:
1. Access command mode using an account that permits Administrator level
commands.
2. SNMPTrapParameters: Access the SNMP Trap Parameters Menu as described in
Section 6.8.6. Set the following:
a) SNMPManagers1and2: The address(es) that will receive SNMP Traps
that are generated by one of the Alarms discussed in Section 8. Consult
your network administrator to determine the IP address(es) for the SNMP
Manager(s), then use the Network Parameters menu to set the IP address
for each SNMP Manager. Note that it is not necessary to define both SNMP
Managers.
