You can enable SNMP from the RouterOS (or CHR) command line. You’ll need Telnet or SSH access to the Mikrotik device.
- SSH or Telnet to your Mikrotik device.
- Enter the following command to enable SNMP:
snmp set enabled=yes
- The above command will enable SNMP v2 with the community string “public” for all IP addresses. To add a custom community string and limit it to a specific IP address, enter the following command:
snmp community add name=COMMUNITY_STRING addresses=IP_ADDRESS_OF_COLLECTOR
Replace COMMUNITY_STRING with your desired community string. Replace IP_ADDRESS_OF_COLLECTOR with the IP address of your collector.
- If you used a community string other than public or private, add it to Auvik by following these steps.
All done! Your Mikrotik device can now be discovered and monitored using Auvik.
