Mangement design for DMZ switches

I'm trying to decide the best route for managing devices on the other side of a firewall. Is it best to open up ports for SNMP to a management IP address on a switch, or can I connect an 2811 with a NM-16A and octal-async cables to the console ports of the switches. If I do that can I send SNMP out the console port?

Re: Mangement design for DMZ switches

The console port is for serial communication only. If you require SNMP you will need to use IP.

Use V3 and restrict access to your IP address
