Re: to enable SNMP on 4200 switch.

This is how you specify community string via CLI





You can specify SNMP community strings for the users defined on the unit using the community command on the SNMP menu.



To specify the SNMP community strings:



At the Top-level menu, enter:



system management snmp community



The following prompt is displayed:



Enter new community for user 'admin' :



The community string is limited to 30 characters.





Enter the community string for the user.





Repeat step 2 for the other users defined on the unit.

The default users and their default community string community strings are:



'admin'

'manager'

'monitor'

Re: to enable SNMP on 4200 switch.

hi,

ok,now suppose i want to enable snmp community string,

i can see Admin (private):abc3com

Admin(abc3com):

is this the correct syntax to enable snmp in write mode.

and what about monitor mode.



thanks
