Setting Up Monitoring Using SNMP

Network administrators can install SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) software on network computers so they can monitor projectors. If your network uses this software, you can set up the projector for SNMP monitoring.
  1. Press the Menu button.
  2. Select the Network menu and press Enter.
  3. Select Network Configuration and press Enter.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • PowerLite 1940W/1950/1960: Select the Others Menu and press Enter.
    • PowerLite 1945W/1955/1965: Select the Administrator Setting menu and press Enter, then select the SNMP menu and press Enter.

    PowerLite 1940W/1950/1960

    PowerLite 1945W/1955/1965

  5. Select the SNMP menu and press Enter (PowerLite 1945W/1955/1965).
  6. Enter up to two IP addresses to receive SNMP notifications, using 0 to 255 for each address field.
    Note: Do not use these addresses: 127.x.x.x or through (where x is a number from 0 to 255).
  7. If your network environment uses an AMX controller, turn on the AMX Device Discovery setting to allow the projector to be detected (PowerLite 1940W/1950/1960).
  8. If your network environment uses a Crestron RoomView controller, turn on the Crestron RoomView setting to allow the projector to be detected (PowerLite 1940W/1950/1960).
  9. If you are connecting to a network using Bonjour, turn on the Bonjour setting (PowerLite 1940W/1950/1960).
  10. If you want this projector to receive broadcasted messages over the network, turn on the Message Broadcasting setting. Administrators can broadcast messages over the network using the Message Broadcasting plug-in for EasyMP Monitor (PowerLite 1940W/1950/1960) (Windows only).
  11. When you finish selecting settings, select Complete or Setup Complete and follow the on-screen instructions to save your settings and exit the menus.
