snmp wan connection

Hi every one

I have a doubt. how to add a device to an SNMP community?.

I mean the community already exists and it is already monitorizing by a PC (monitoring tests are performed in implemantacion possible).  and there are several teams that are monitored, but is thought to put other devices for monitoring, which makes me wonder: how do new devices could be added?  Do I have to configure any ACL?

Greetings.

Hello Johnnatan

No quite sure what you are asking  regards snmp setup but below is the basic requirements for NMS access on a switch/router

There are various optional values that can be utilised for snmp setup, but for basic snmp you will need to specify snmp server host and snmp-server communities with community string values.

The remote device specified by either an ip addresss or hostname will be the destination (NMS)that your switch/router will send snmp notifications too ( Network management systems)

snmp-server host 10.10.10.10 mycomstring (the community-string is like a password)

Then you can use different access values via different community strings with either Read&write (RW) or Read-Only(RO) to permit access to snmp on your switch/router

snmp-server community RWstring1 RW (read-write)
snmp-server community ROstring2 RO ( read-only)

This could be further controlled by acl's to permit certain networks access

access-list 10 permit ip 10.10.10.0 0.0.0.255

snmp-server community RWstring1 RW 10

Please look at this:
