Is in possible to have at the same time for the same device Traps in SNMP v1/v2c and Polling in SNMP



Hello !

Here is our problem:

- Our client wants SNMP v3 for supervising the devices - SNMPv3 is not yet implemented for traps so we could accept SNMPv2c or even SNMPv1 for traps - It seems we can only configurate SNMP version on the device level

> How do we do if we need different versions for polling and traps?

This problem is quite important for us since we cannot leave neither v3 nor traps.

Thank you very much !

SNMP Credentials can only be configured on the parent device directly and it is just possible to use one SNMP version, sorry. At the moment, I would recommend to create an additional device for the SNMP Traps. I will add this to our feature request list.

Best regards
