Customising the Web Interface on the AKCP SecurityProbe

What is SNMP?

SNMP stands for Simple Network Management Protocol. It is a system for managing network attached devices. All the AKCP monitoring devices support SNMP.

What do I need?

In this example I am assumng you are using a Windows machine. Other operating systems will be similar but the details will vary.

First you will need some kind of SNMP program We recommend Net-SNMP available free from this website. Click on the blue text, binaries. For Windows 32 bit users click on X86.exe (or for 64 bit users x64.exe). This will download the files you need. versions for other operating systems are also available.

Simply run the installer program to install Net-Snmp on your machine. You should now be able to open a command window and type snmpget and a program will run.

Setting a new Customer Name

Open a command prompt in Windows. Click Start, Run.., Type CMD and click on OK. This will open a command prompt box.

The following SNMP set command will upload a new Customer Name to the sensorProbes web interface.

It is recommended that you cut and paste this command and edit the details as described below.

snmpset -m all -v 1 -c <community> <IPaddress> .1.3.6.1.4.1.3854.1.1.6.0 s "___________"

Community names are a type of password protection used by SNMP to restrict access to devices.

Replace <community> with the actual community name that your devices are using. The default community name is public. If your Network Administrator has changed this you will need to find out what it has been changed to.

Replace <IPaddress> with the actual IP address of the SecurityProbe on your network.

Replace __________ with the text that you want to appear on the opening page.

The following example shows our own SecurityProbe

C:\>snmpset -m all -v 1 -c public 217.37.84.131 .1.3.6.1.4.1.3854.1.1.6.0 s "OPENXTRA LIMITED"

All the other commands are similar in format.

Setting a new Product Name

The following SNMP set command upload a new Product Name to the sensorProbes web interface:

snmpset -m all -v 1 -c <community> <IPaddress> .1.3.6.1.4.1.3854.1.1.8.0 s "___________"

Replace <community> with the actual community name that your devices are using. The default community name is public. If your Network Administrator has changed this you will need to find out what it has been changed to.

Replace <IPaddress> with the actual IP address of the SecurityProbe on your network.

Replace __________ with the text that you want to appear as the Product Name.

Setting a new Display Logo

Create your custom logo and save this as a .gif file. This file should be no larger than 150 x 40 pixels.

akcp logo

Drag and drop your custom logo into the zip file that has the firmware update as shown in the screen shot above.

Using the supplied IPSet utility, run the firmware update on the sensorProbe

Note: the sensorProbe will continue to display these custom details unit the firmware is updated.

The following SNMP command sets the Display Logo on the sensorProbes web interface.

snmpset -m all -v 1 -c <community> <IPaddress> .1.3.6.1.4.1.3854.1.2.2.1.59.0 i 1

Replace <community> with the actual community name that your devices are using. The default community name is public. If your Network Administrator has changed this you will need to find out what it has been changed to.

Replace <IPaddress> with the actual IP address of the SecurityProbe on your network.

Setting a new Help Link

The following SNMP set command to upload the Help Link to the sensorProbes web interface.

snmpset -m all -v 1 -c <community> <IPaddress> .1.3.6.1.4.1.3854.1.1.7.0 s "__________"

Replace <community> with the actual community name that your devices are using. The default community name is public. If your Network Administrator has changed this you will need to find out what it has been changed to.
