OverviewExinda SNMP alerts are sent from the management interface/IP of the Exinda.
If an admin wants to restrict only certain hosts to be able to access the SNMP warnings/alerts from the Exinda then they can do so on the Exinda if the management IP traffic passes through the bridges on the unit.
a) Users can create a network object for the Exindas IP and another object for the hosts they want to allow SNMP to the Exinda.
b) Create a policy with source and destination as the objects above and application SNMP
c) Create another policy under it with just the Exinda's IP in the host list and application SNMP and discard that traffic.
If the management traffic does not pass through the Exinda, then whichever device (firewall, router etc) is responsible for controlling the management traffic, there needs to be a rule there to allow or disallow SNMP access to the Exinda.
