How to configure a Cisco ASA firewall to recognize Auvik


If your network has a Cisco ASA firewall, you'll need to change its configuration in order for Auvik to properly recognize the device. Against the firewall configuration, enable snmp-server host and set the IP address to that of the Auvik collector.

You’ll need:

  • SNMP enabled on the Cisco ASA firewall
  • Telnet, SSH, or serial (console) access to the Cisco device
  • The IP address of your Auvik collector
  1. Telnet, SSH, or serial (console) into your IOS device.
  2. Enter global configuration mode by typing enable. Enter your escalated privilege credentials.
  3. Enter configuration mode by typing configure terminal.
  4. Issue one of the following commands:
    • snmp-server host inside auvik_collector_IP_address community public
    • snmp-server host inside_new auvik_collector_IP_address community public
  5. Exit configuration mode by typing end.
  6. Commit the running configuration changes to startup configuration memory by typing write mem.

All done! Auvik will now be able to recognize the device as a Cisco ASA firewall.
