want to catch traps when user fails login to router/switch

Hi,

When somebody tries to log in to one of my routers or switches and fails, I would like to be notified in CiscoWorks.

How can I do this ?

Thanks

have your device send syslog to ciscoworks and then generate automated alerts from syslog...

Thanks RouterTech1. I did just that. Used the sample

perl program sampleEmailScript.pl that Cisco supplies to send emails out every time I get an Login Failure %MGMT-5-LOGIN_FAIL

Works like a treat.

I was looking in the wrong place, thinking about DFM.

Cheers

You also might want to look at the automated features of syslog notification.

They can be found in RME->Tools->Syslog->Automated Actions
