The Configure and Verify Device-Monitoring Protocols module provides you with the instructions and Cisco hardware to develop your hands on skills in configuring and implementing Simple Network Management Protocol version 2 and 3. This module includes exercises that will cover the following topics:

  • Configure and verify secure access to SNMPv2c
  • Configure SNMPv3 and observe differences between the two versions

Exercise 1 - Configuring SNMPv2c

In this exercise, you will configure SNMPv2c on the NYEDGE1 router with a read-write (RW) community string of PracticeLabsRW. You will also limit the devices that can access SNMP information using an access list.

Exercise 2 - Configuring SNMPv3

In order to appreciate the features offered by the different versions of SNMP, you will now configure SNMPv3 implementing its additional capabilities.

Configuring SNMPv3 is only a little bit more complicated than SNMPv2c as there are more features that you can configure.

You have a choice of enabling authentication, encryption or neither. These options are defined in the following list:

  • noauth - does not use authentication
  • auth - enables authentication
  • priv - enables encryption
