Concerning configuring SNMP on the sensor, I recommend doing this via

the IDM (https) method of configuring the sensor. You can find the

documentation on configuring SNMP via IDM here:


Here's the SNMP configuration information from the CLI configuration

guide (it lists the MIBs you need for a third-party SNMP server, check

the end of the document for the MIB info):


Here's the link to the full IDM configuration guide:

Let me know if you encounter any problems with these procedures.

Please rate if this helps.

If you are looking for sending IPS events from SSM module to a syslog server, unfortunately, thats not possible. IPS is not designed to send events to a syslog server. It works on RDEP protocol under which a event viewer server is supposed to pull the events from the IPS. So what actually you need is a Event Viewer. This can either pull the events realtime or based on the time duration. However, SSM module has very less amount of memory to store the events. So it would be better if we have a IEV which maintains a constant connection to the SSM module and pulls events frequently.
