IMC & Wireless Manager

Do we know if IMC and Wireless switch manager can be run on the same machine. Director and WXM can, does iMC support it?

Re: IMC & Wireless Manager

This is not supported, contention for TCP/UDP ports by both applications will occur. 3ND and WXM are not supported on the same platform either.

Re: IMC & Wireless Manager

We're currently running 3ND & WXM on the same platform. In 3com's words: 3Com Network Director is fully compatible with 3Com Wireless Switch Manager.

These applications can be installed and executed on the same PC,

simultaneously.



If anyone needs to use these together, the details are below, it works; However from what you've said, I presume there is no such compatibility between IMC & WXM?



3Com Network Director is fully compatible with 3Com Wireless Switch Manager. These applications can be installed and executed on the same PC, simultaneously.



However, by default, only one application can register for and receive traps on the standard UDP port that is reserved for trap reception. As such, in order to prevent conflicts in registering for traps, 3Com Network Director can be configured to forward traps to another port, as described below. In turn, 3Com Wireless Switch Manager can be configured to receive traps on another port.



Please follow these instructions to configure 3Com Network Director to forward traps to another UDP port on the same PC:



1. Open Windows Explorer, and navigate to the following directory where

3Com Network Director is installed:

\data\com\coms\wsd\tns\server\network



2. Using a text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad, open the following file:



TrapForwarding.properties



3. Enable trap forwarding by setting the status of the trap_forwarding_enabled

parameter to "true":



trap_forwarding_enabled = true



Please use lower case letters, as 3Com Network Director is case-sensitive.



4. By default, traps will be forwarded to UDP port 1181. This port has been reserved specifically for this purpose by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). However, if you are running another application which is already using this port, then you can configure 3Com Network Director to forward to a different port by setting the trap_forwarding_port parameter to the desired UDP port. e.g.



trap_forwarding_port =



where is the number of an appropriate, unused UDP port.



5. Save the file, and restart 3Com Network Director. All traps received by 3Com Network Director will now be forwarded to the specified port.



Please refer to the documentation that comes with 3Com Wireless Switch Manager for instructions on how to configure it to receive traps on a specified UDP

port.
