SMUX peers file
The snmpd.peers file contains information which the SNMP
uses to authenticate requests from SMUX peers to register
subtrees with the SNMP agent/server.
Lines in the snmpd.peers file are of the form:
name object-id password [priority]
Each token is separated by white space, though double quotes may be used
to prevent separation. Lines which begin with a hash sign (#) are ignored.
the name of a SMUX peer
object-identifier (OID) in dot notation that represents the
SMUX peer; see RFC 1213 for a description of
a password in unencrypted form; snmpd compares the value of
password with the value of the password received in the
open request PDU from the SMUX peer
an optional priority value that snmpd uses to determine which
SMUX peer to consult when more than one peer registers the same
subtree; valid values are in the range [0, (2^31)-1], with a lower number
having a higher priority (a ``-1'' can also be used to represent the
Since the passwords in the snmpd.peers file are not encrypted,
the file must be in protected mode 0600 and owned by root.
