The VoIP device allows the operating state to be monitored using SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol with version 1 and 3). Standard MIB II and a manufacturer-specific MIB (Management Information Base) are supported. Detailed information about this MIB can be obtained from a certified innovaphone dealer or downloaded directly in the download area of the innovaphone homepage. It is included in the folder "tools" of the "apps" package together with other applications and firmware. File name: INNO-MIB-V7.TXT (

innovaphone uses the standard Ports for SNMP, UDP Port 161 and UDP Port 162 for SNMP traps, and they are not changeable.

Note: SNMP traps will not be send before an uptime of 90 seconds(will be collected in this time). Due to DHCP negotiation awaiting
Enable: Enable the SNMP service (default: deactivated).
Enable SNMPv1: SNMPv1 must be explicitely activated (default: deactivated).
Community: If the standard community name public is not being used, a different community name can be entered in this field.
Device Name: For more detailed information, a device name can be specified here for the SNMP agent.
Contact: As can a contact person (Contact).
Location: As can a location (Location).
Authentication Trap: Access via SNMP is only possible if the correct community name is entered. If this check box is checked, a trap is generated in the case of access with an incorrect community name.
Trap Destination: Destinations for trap messages also have to be defined if the device is to trigger the traps defined in the manufacturer-specific innovaphone MIB.
Allowed Networks: To increase security, access to the device can be restricted by restricting SNMP access to a defined list of computers or IP address ranges. To disable SNMP access completely just enter as Address and as Mask.
SNMPv3/Engine ID: Informative: This agent's engine id according to RFC3411
SNMPv3/Authentication: Choose from MD5, SHA1. A selection of NONE will force the encryption setting to NONE, also.
SNMPv3/Encryption: Choose from DES, AES128.
SNMPv3/User,Password(Auth),Password(Crypt): Enter the credentials for this agent's authoritative engine. Two different passwords are configurable. One password for authentication and a different one for privacy/encryption.

In V7 the SNMP Traps are enhanced

All events with type =Alarm are send via SNMP traps. SNMP Trap delivers: code,severity,txt (e.g interface down) and Alarm –source (e.g IP0/ETH1)
