Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a widely used protocol for monitoring the health and welfare of network equipment (eg. routers), computer equipment and even devices like UPSs. Net-SNMP is a suite of applications used to implement SNMP v1, SNMP v2c and SNMP v3 using both IPv4 and IPv6. 1
Net-SNMP is the most used SNMP implementation for Linux.
Net-SNMP can be installed with the Pakfire web interface or via the console:
pakfire install netsnmpd
There is no web interface for this Addon. To run this Addon open the client console or terminal and access the IPFire box via SSH.
To get access to a Linux-System over SNMP, you have to modify:
Should the Subnet 192.168.0.0/24 be allowed to read the whole SNMP-Directory, the following have to be added:
com2sec localnet 192.168.0.0/24 public group localgroup usm localnet group localgroup v1 localnet view all included .1 access localgroup "" any noauth exact all none none
snmpwalk -v1 -c public 192.168.0.254 system
Change the IP to the system that should be tested.
