Assigning the IP Address Using ARP Commands
Using the SNMP
This unit supports SNMP (Simple Network
Management Protocol). You can read MIB-2 objects
and write some MIB-2 objects using software such as
SNMP manager software. This unit also supports the
coldStart trap which occurs when the power is turned on
or the unit restarts, and the Authentication failure trap
which informs of an illegal access using SNMP.
Using CGI commands, you can set community name
and access limitation, reading/writing right, host to send
traps, and some MIB-2 objects. To allow these settings,
you need Level 4 authentication (the right to open the
setting pages).
1. Inquiry Commands
You can check the SNMP Agent settings using the
following CGI commands.
With the above inquiry, you can obtain the following
setting information. The following explains the setting
information using the inqjs=snmp (JavaScript
parameter) format.
var sysDescr=“\“SONY Video Network Station SNTV704\””
...1
var sysObjectIP=“1.3.6.1.4.1.122.8501
...2
var sysLocation=“\“\””
...3
var sysContact=“\“\””
...4
var sysName=“\“\””
...5
var snmpEnableAuthenTraps=“1”
...6
var community=“public,0.0.0.0,read,1”
...7
var community=“private,192.168.0.101,write,2” ...8
var trap=“public,192.168.0.101.1”
...9
1 describes the instance of “mib-2.system.
sysDescr.0”. You cannot change this parameter.
2 describes the instance of “mib-2.system.
sysObjectID.0”. You cannot change this parameter.
3 describes the instance of “mib-2.system.
sysLocation.0”. This field is used to describe the
information on the location of this unit. Nothing is
set at the factory.
5 describes the instance of “mib-2.system.
sysName.0”. This field is used to describe the
administration node of this unit. Nothing is set at
the factory.
6 describes the instance of “mib-2.snmpEnable
AuthenTraps.0”. This example shows when “1”
(enable) is set. With this setting, a trap occurs when
there is an Authentication failure. When “2”
(disable) is set, no Authentication failure trap
occurs.
7 describes the community name and the reading/
writing attributes. This example shows the
identification number “ID=1”, the community
name public, and enables read from any IP address
(0.0.0.0).
