snmpv3 connection to Cisco router



Hi, I am struggling to get snmpv3 and PRTG working for a Cisco router. Does PRTG rely on snmp information being sent to the PRTG server (traps)? Do you have an example cisco snmpv3 configuration that works with PRTG ? Thanks, Jaime

it's not necessary to send traps to PRTG for the configuration of "normal" SNMP Polling. I'm afraid we also do not have guides on how to setup SNMPv3 on Cisco Devices. But You can use our SNMP Tester to assist with the troubleshooting.

best regards.
