Hi guys,

I have a small problem that is starting to bug me, every day at the same time I’m receiving Authentication Failure from SNMP on 2 servers.

I would like to know if there is any way to find out which computer I (IP Address) is trying to access my servers using the wrong community name.

Thanks

Try installing Wireshark on the server and watch for  the SNMP authentication failure traps
