To get access to a Linux-System over SNMP, you have to modify:


Should the Subnet be allowed to read the whole SNMP-Directory, to following have to be added:

com2sec localnet         public
group localgroup usm       localnet
group localgroup v1       localnet
view all    included  .1
access localgroup ""      any       noauth    exact  all    none   none
