How to Configure SNMP Monitoring

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda NextGen Firewall X-Series offers the ability to supply information to Network Management Systems via SNMP. Both SNMP v2c and v3 are supported. Barracuda Networks recommends using SNMP v3 because it is more secure. Use the Barracuda Firewall MIB file to use the reference objects included for your SNMP monitor software appliance or script.

SNMP v2

  • IP address (range) from which the Network Management System will contact the X-Series Firewall SNMP service.
  • SNMP community string.

SNMP v3

  • User and password to authenticate the NMS.
  • Authentication Method (supported encryption methods).
  • Allowed IP address or range for the Network Management System.

Configure SNMP v2

  1. Open the BASIC > Administration page.
  2. In the SNMP Manager section, configure the following settings:
    • Enable SNMP Agent – Select Yes. 
    • SNMP Version – Select v2c
    • Community String – Enter a password to authenticate the SNMP server.  
    • Allowed SNMP IP/Range – Add the IP addresses or range from which the X-Series Firewall should accept SNMP queries.

  3. In the Administrator IP/Range section, add the Allowed SNMP IP/Range to the IP/Network Address list. 

    Verify that the computer used to administer the X-Series Firewall is in one of the networks included in the Administrator IP/Range. You will be locked out of the firewall otherwise. The default value of 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0 allows all networks and IP addresses to administer the X-Series Firewall.
