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

    Thank you in advance.

  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!

    How do you accomplish this?

  5. It has. Thank you very much!
