I've a router in a DMZ. I can access it through my administration LAN. One of the computer in this LAN is connected to it through the console serial port and when i need to administrate it, I make a remote connection to the computer and use hyperterminal. What I would like to do is to be able to monitor the router through this console port because I can't access it (snmp or telnet) through the network due to firewalls.
Ideally, i would like to generate snmp traps from my remote admin computer when router interfaces fall down.
Is is possible ? What kind of software would help me reach that aim ?
Monitoring a router or a device on the console is not advisable. The interrupts the CPU needs to process for console logging is pretty high and can impact services if high error rate or anything to occupy the CPU happens.
Its always desirable to put in no console logging in devices.
You can connect a cross connect from the PC you are connecting the console to and do an SNMP reporting. This will be a standalone PC and do a RDC to the PC and monitor the SNMP rather than the console itself.
Certain NMS like SMARTS,Netcool etc are able to port the traps and snmp details to other management stations. So you can try that as well. But SMARTS and NETCOOL requires alot of investements.
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
