How to enable snmp on Redhat?

How do you enable SNMP on Redhat 2.4.20?

Thanks,
Angie

Re: How to enable snmp on Redhat?

If it was installed, you can use the 'service snmpd start' command to start it.

# chkconfig --list | grep snmp

# rpm -qa | grep -i snmp
net-snmp-cmaX-5.1-83

Either of these 2 commands can tell you if snmp is available on your system.

I am on kernel 2.4.21 and I have the net-snmp-cmaX-5.1-83 version of snmp installed.

It appears that its not even installed on this system. Where can you get it from? I believe this is Redhat 9...but for sure kernel 2.4.20 when I do a uname -a that is what it says.

Will wait for your reply.

You can obtain the net-snmp via several sources.

Can use yum to do install
Can use apt-install
Can install from original CDs and then update
Can search google for locations to download
