Stop the firewall and restart it. Type systemctl stop firewalld and systemctl start firewalld
Open a web browser and go to https://your_centos_ipaddress/ Enter a password for the admin user.

In EcoStruxure IT, go to Administration > Gateways. You can see the Gateway is now connected to your account.
Allowing the Gateway to receive SNMP traps for APC devices and/or 3rd party SNMP devices
EcoStruxure IT Expert uses only UDP port 1062 for both APC NMC and 3rd party SNMP traps. CentOS does not allow port 1062 for incoming SNMP trap on its default settings.
1. To check which inbound ports are allowed:
Type sudo firewall-cmd –list-ports
It will return empty if no incoming port is allowed
2. To allow incoming SNMP trap on port 1062:
Type sudo firewall-cmd –add-port=1062/udp --permanent
3. Next, stop/start firewalld or use restart:
- Type sudo systemctl restart firewalld
- Check allowed ports. It should list 1062/udp
- Type sudo firewall-cmd –list-ports
