|Title||Overview of Web Card Configuration Settings|
This video will give a brief overview of the most common configuration settings for an SNMPWEBCARD in PowerAlert.
In the “Status” tab, the “Overview” section is where you can see whether your device is connected, whether your battery’s good, and check voltage input and output.
In the “Details” section, you can see when your device was installed, and give it a name, location, and region. You can check the status of anything and everything related to your device – check its behavior, set load level and battery threshholds and warnings, and keep track of things like serial numbers, firmware versions, and VA ratings.
The “Alarms” section is where you can check alarm statuses.
In the “Device” tab, you can execute various device-related actions, like initiating a self-test, rebooting, shutting down, and scheduling loads to turn off or on.
In the “Actions” tab, you can set up automatic email notifications, set SNMP traps for events, and execute various device- and load-related actions. And in the “Scheduling” section, you can schedule specific actions. . . by clicking this plus sign, selecting the action you want to schedule, then setting it up.
“The Address Book” is where you enter email addresses or network management stations. You can add a device by clicking this plus sign down here at the bottom and entering its name, IP address, and community.
There are different types of logs—an event log, data log, and an accounting log. The event log stores events that happen with the unit itself—like when somebody presses a button on the front panel or the device starts up. The data log takes those events and puts date and time stamps on them. The accounting log keeps track of who logged in and who changed what. Down here at the bottom, you can set filters to make it easier to find certain events.
The “Preferences” area is where you configure how the device talks on the network. You can come in through http or https, which is secure http. If you want to come in through Telnet, SSH, or FTP, those protocols are also available.
SMTP. This handles your mail. It asks you for your mail server address, what port it runs on, if your email requires a username and password, and any authentication methods you use to log into that email server.
The “Internet” section is where you set up your network settings—IP, subnet, gateway. . .
And in the “DNS” section, you’ll find your DNS server settings—your primary and your secondary. . .
And your host name.
The “Security” section is where you can change passwords, set up different users, and give them different types of privileges.
The “System” area is where you can configure system settings and log system events. In this area, you can forward events to Syslog servers, configure the settings for network time protocols, and schedule the pinging of other devices. . . and set it up so that your network interface will restart if you don’t get responses from those other devices.
In the “Restart” area, you can do a factory reset on the card, reset all users, or restart the interface.
In the Help section, you’ll find configuration information, the serial number of the unit, and the driver firmware version. And you can copy this information to your clipboard for a Word document . . . or whatever you need.
