Summary
Configure your device for Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) support. When SNMP is not enabled, an SSL connection between the SMS and the device transfers Alert messages reliably and securely. Alerts sent using SNMP can be encrypted if DES or AES is selected in the SNMP User Privacy settings. You can create multiple SNMPv2c communities to support NMS, IPs, or subnets. Each community can have multiple rules; however, the source IP address must be different. For example, you can create a rule for a Community named Public with a source IP address of 1.1.1.1. You can have a second rule for Public with a source IP address of 2.2.2.2. After you enable SNMP, it might take a couple of seconds to start the SNMP demon. In the unlikely case of a collision with another device, you can change the Engine ID to a different value; however, the new value must be unique. Note that changing the Engine ID regenerates each read-only user, which affects connectivity.
