The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality.

This article explains how to configure Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) targets on WAP551 and WAP561 Access Points which supports SNMPv3 targets. A SNMP Target refers to both the message sent and the management device to which agent notifications are sent. Each target is identified by target name, IP address, UDP port, and user name.
SNMPv3 send SNMP target notifications as Inform messages to the SNMP Manager rather than traps. This ensures target delivery since traps do not use acknowledge but informs do.
Note: SNMP User configurations should be completed before the configuration of SNMPv3 targets. To configure SNMPv3 users, refer to the article, SNMP User Configuration on the WAP551 and WAP561 Access Points.
Step 1. Log in to the Access Point Configuration Utility, choose SNMP > Targets. The Targets page opens:
Step 2. Click Add to add a new SNMP target. A WAP device supports a maximum of eight targets.
Step 3. Check the new target row and click Edit.
Step 4. Enter the IP address of the remote SNMP manager that is to receive the target in the IP Address field.
Step 5. Enter the UDP Port associated with the target in the UDP Port field.
Step 6. Choose the user to associate with the target from the Users drop-down list. This list shows a list of all the users created on the Users page.
Step 7. Click Save to save new target.
Step 8. (Optional) To edit an existing target, check the target check box in the SNMPv3 Targets table and click Edit. Make the desired changes and click Save.
Step 9. (Optional) To remove a configured target from the list, check the target check box in the SNMPv3 Targets table, click Delete, and click Save.
