I know this might be a poor follow-up and not a FreeBSD issue, sorry! But I am quite stucked with the configuration of net-snmp. I got it from ports (version 5.0.6). I added the createUser line to /var/net-snmp/snmpd.conf like the HOWTO tells me to do (http://www.net-snmp.org/FAQ.html#How_do_I_configure_SNMPv__users_), restarted net-snmp but whatever I try I get no authorization eg. ('guest' is the user I added with the createUser directive): silakka# snmpget -u guest -A <the password> -v 3 -l noAuthNoPriv localhost sysUpTime Error in packet Reason: authorizationError (access denied to that object) I have also tried to run snmpconf script but there seems to be little to do with users or communities other than the line: rouser guest auth I also tried with the snmpwalk (same auth error) and tried to configure MRTG with cfgmaker but of course it can't retrieve any info. So I would need some basic knowledge about the authentication with net-snmp. Any brief ideas? :) I would also like to specify a community ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) for MRTG to use.
