TECH TIP: Why don't SNMPv3 traps show up in the TrapExploder trap log?

Discussion created by Michael_Thompson Employee on May 1, 2015

PROBLEM:

You have confirmed that TrapExploder is receiving and sending SNMPv3 traps, but none of those traps are being saved to the log file configured with the File filter in trapexploder.cf

 

SOLUTION:

The only thing that TrapExploder can do with SNMPv3 traps is send them to a destination with a Blind forward filter. Because TrapX can neither authenticate nor unencrypt SNMPv3 traps, their contents cannot be copied into the log file.
