  1. Hi Rene,

    Are those the only commands to enter the router to get SNMP v2 going? How about the client side?

    Thank you in advance.

  2. Hi Zaman,

    If you use the snmp-server enable traps command then it will enable all traps yes.

    If you don’t want to use traps, you only have to set a community. Your NMS can then reach the network device and access it.

  3. Hello Aniket

    SNMP is a protocol that not only monitors network devices, but can also change their configurations. SNMP uses seven PDU types. Only one of those, SetRequest, is used to modify something in the config of the device. Specifically it is a request from an SNMP manager to an agent to change the value of a variable or list of variables. This is the PDU that requires the RW community string.

    The RW community string is not involved in config backups, but in actual changes to the config itself.

    I hope this has been helpful!

  4. There’s a lab in GNS3VAULT that states the following:

    Configure router Agent so it doesn’t send any traps or informs when something happens with the loopback0 interface.

    How do you accomplish this?
