Add access point for monitoring



Hi, we have 10 Ruckus access points and would to add them however as soon as we add a sensor for SNMP Traffic it complains about unknown user name. Is there somewhere we are meant to add credentials. We tried adding our admin creds under v3 of the SNMP settings during setup.

Hi Matt,

Thank you very much for your post.

Do you use SNMP v3 and if so, please confirm that you've stored proper SNMP v3 credentials within the device's or group's Settings tab in PRTG.

Does this already do the trick?
