Issues with adding security to net-snmp on hp-ux 11.31

While trying to add security features to the net-snmp conf on hp-ux 11.31 I am running into issues where it does not appear to be allowing connections to snmp.  Here is further information:

 

with:

rocommunity CO_string IP

The snmp works properly and I can snmpwalk to it from another server without issue.

 

However, when I try to update it with the strings that our linux servers use, it appears to not allow connections (even though it is listening on 161):

 

#disk monitoring
disk /
disk /home
disk /usr
disk /var

 

com2sec some_name 192.168.X.X CO_string

group some_grp v2c some_name

view all included .1

access some_grp ""   v2c  noauth    exact     all  none none

 

Is there something that I am missing that is different on hp-ux net-snmp compared ot Linux?

 

 

thanks,

 

 

- Sean

This issue was a combination of overzealous firewall settings and issues with the SNMP version installed on the host.  I ended up reinstalling the net-snmp software with the latest software and adjusting firewall settings. I can now poll the server in question.
