  5. Enter the following information:
    The IP address of the SNMP device.
    UDP Port
    The port used by the SNMP device to communicate with Security Center.
    The SNMP version of the SNMP device.
  6. (Optional) If you are using SNMPv2c, enter the following:

  10. In the Advanced settings section, enter the following:
