SNMP Traffic



Hi There!

I have a problem in sensor snmp traffic.

Whenever I try to add this sensor, it loads but it does not show the network card options. It says “No interface number available”, and so I am not able to create the sensor.

I've created a few sensors that they are functioning normally, but other options of network cards do not appear.

Could you help me?

I want the sensor to check the network cards of firewall. :)

Thank you.

Please use our SNMP Tester (https://www.paessler.com/tools/snmptester) to scan against the firewall with the option "Scan available standard interfaces". Which result do you get?
