How to monitor SNMP trap in PRTG Network Monitor




We have a Juniper Netscreen NS5GT firewall in which we would like to monitor the allocated sessions and send an alert once a certain value is reached. We already use PRTG to monitor the bandwidth so I assume the SNMP trap is already setup and it's just a matter of adding right right sensor to the local probe. We found a list of Netscreen traps located here > http://kb.juniper.net/index?page=content&id=KB4439&actp=LIST

I believe the one we want is allocated-session-threshold(51), but I have no idea what information to enter in the sensor settings.

I'm fairly new to SNMP trapping and PRTG so if someone could please explain how to set this up I would appreciate it, thank you
