How to Configure SNMP?
I am very new to SNMP
Even though the question may seem to be silly,
I want your help!!!
My Questions are:
1.I am using BOSS linux 3.1(A Debian Derived Linux).
what is the use of SNMP?
2.If we want to monitor a system, is it required
to have SNMP to be installed ?
3.How to install SNMP and configure it?
4.How to find the version of SNMP installed in my system?
I tried to find with snmpwalk - It showed version like
SNMP V2- MIB
and executed tcpdump and it showed results like
ICMP request on
SNMP Version 1
Actually what is the version?
If we planned to use SNMPV3, what should be done???
5.How to enable SNMP port?
I was using Hyperic HQ open source monitoring tool which was installed on
I wished to monitor System B and I specified the IP address of System B to monitor in the Webbased tool in System A.
When I clicked Ok button , i got a message like,
SNMP configuration is wrong . it asked SNMP IP ,SNMP port(161) and some thing like idescrie etc,
I am sure that the SNMP tool is running in the System B, but still
i am getting error messages like "Wrong Configuration'
What to do....?
I have been struck up for 2 days..
Please some one help....
