How to enable SNMP on a Tripp Lite UPS


Note: Due to interface variations on various models and firmware versions of Tripp Lite devices, these steps should be considered a guideline. If you’d like help configuring your specific Tripp Lite device, contact Auvik support.

To enable SNMP, you need:

  • Administrative access to the web interface of the UPS, and
  • A network management card installed (SNMPWEBCARD) on the UPS.

Here are the steps to enable SNMP:

  1. Log into the Power Alert web interface.
  2. Navigate to the Preferences tab and the Network menu.
  3. Select Services from the list on the left.
  4. Make sure the “Enable SNMPv1” box is checked. Select “Enable SNMPv2c” if you’d prefer that version to be used.
  5. Check the “Automatically Start SNMP” box.
  6. (Optional) If you want to use a non-standard community string, enter it now.
  7. Save your changes.
  8. If you used a community string other than public or private, add it to Auvik by following these steps.
