SNMP Trap Receiver Sensor shows GenTrap 4 - authenticationFailure




I added the SNMP trap sensor to a device and I tried different filters ('any', source ip + community, only community, etc) but I always get same response = GenTrap 4 - authenticationFailure, even if I set the "community" filter with same word in both sides.

What Im doing wrong?

Best Regards
