Trap receiver and sensors



We are not sure how to configure SNMP trap receiver to work with sensors. We have different groups with different devices that can send traps. But the trap receiver can only be setup on probe. How do we forward the reception of trap to specific device in group and generate alarm there?? The users that login don't see the probe but only their group of devices.

I'm afraid it's not really possible to "forward" traps from a Trap Receiver Sensor on a Probe Device to a different device. You could try "copying" the sensor results with a Sensor Factory Sensor, but the "error-handling" would still need to be done on the Trap Receive Sensor on the Probe device.

best regards.
