SNMP communities file
The file /etc/netmgt/snmpd.comm contains the definitions for the
communities which will be supported by the SNMP agent/server
The file contains lines which consist of the following items:
Lines which begin with backslashes (\) are ignored.
the protocol name (``ip'')
the session or community string used as a password for access to the
an IP address in decimal dot notation
the privileges to be associated with the community and address pair
(READ, WRITE, or NONE; NONE is used
to lock out specific communities or hosts)
The IP address 0.0.0.0
is used as a wild card, meaning any host using the
IP protocol can use the community string to gain access to the
SNMP agent. Hence it must be used with care. As a safety
precaution, never assign the WRITE privilege to entries using a
wild card address.
The following is a valid SNMP configuration file.
ip test1 126.96.36.199 READ /* read access to specific IP address */
ip test2 188.8.131.52 WRITE /* write access to specific IP address */
ip public 0.0.0.0 READ /* read access to any IP address */
ip interop 0.0.0.0 READ /* read access to any IP address */
UnixWare includes the following default snmpd.comm file:
ip public 0.0.0.0 read
ip interop 0.0.0.0 read
ip isc-i88 0.0.0.0 read
