There was some comment recently on using SNMP to manage a firewall.
While I think that maybe *configuring* the firewall through SNMP
(v2,of course) is still a bit too much for me, I am interested in
*watching* the firewall through SNMP.
This leads me to my question: in a setup with a firewall machine
(UNIX, NT, whatever) and a few routers here and there, is it common
to have an SNMP management station dedicated to this architecture?
What I'm considering doing is adding a PC with SNMP management
software to watch traps from the FW and the routers. What's the
general feeling towards this idea? Also, which software is being used
out there (OpenView, NetView, ...)
Thanks in advance!
