  • Page 24: Setup Menu

    Setup Menu When the main page appears, locate the Setup menu on the left side of the screen (see Below). Click on the setup item that you want to configure or monitor. There are eight options: SNMP, PoE, Schedule, Port Group, SNTP, Status, System, RTC Time, Trap, Password, Backup Settings and Reset Settings as shown in the Main Menu screen.
  • Page 25: Snmp Setting

    SNMP defines both the format of the MIB specifications and the protocol used to access this information over the network. The DWL-P1012 supports SNMP version 1. In SNMP v.1, user authentication is accomplished using 'community strings', which function like passwords. The remote user SNMP application and the DWL-P1012 SNMP must use the same community string.
  • Page 26 MIBs Management and counter information are stored by the Midspan in the Management Information Base (MIB). The DWL-P1012 uses the standard MIB- II Management Information Base module and Power over Ethernet MIB (RFC3621). Consequently, values for MIB objects can be retrieved from any SNMP-based network management software.
