commenting now, so maybe we'll get an update in a year or two.
This feature was implemented in XG Firewall
C'mon Sophos. You sold me a pair of Email Appliances saying it would be a huge upgrade from the UTM SMTP. But, since I can't export from UTM, I am forced to bring up both GUIs side-by-side and copy IPv4 addresses from the objects in UTM and paste them into a descriptionless list. This is a fail on both the UTM and SEA products.
Why is an SNMP community string limited to only a single IP address? I even tried using an IP of a subnet: 192.168.20.0 or with a mask: 192.168.20.0/24 or 255.255.255.0 ....can't even use an 'all' with 0.0.0.0.
How many networks have only a single computer using SNMP? Only one that doesn't have any network admins using IP Address Tracker. We scan networks and walk with a pre-built list of SNMP community strings to identify the equipment.
That's what SNMP info is for....to let people know what the equipment is, where it is, and who to contact.
It's not supposed to be a secret from your own network.
