Watch Question

SNMP configs:-------------------------
snmp-server host [ip of snmp server]
snmp-server community [community string] RO (read only)
snmp-server community [community string] RW (read/write)
snmp-server enable traps
Here's Cisco's doc's on confiuguring SNMP on the PIX/ASA:
icmp permit any echo-reply inside
Here's cisco doc's on this:

I just can't seem to figure out why my ASA doesn't seem to want to take a RO|RW parameter.
ASA-5505(config)# snmp-server community myCommunity RW
And I get an invalid character reference at the "R" in "RW"

ASA software is 7.2(3)

Any ideas??? I looked for the above solution in the 7.2 command line reference, and there was no mention of the RO or RW parameter either. I need to make my community string RW, and cannot do it.

You cannot RW to a PIX/ASA, only to routers.   http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa70/configuration/guide/trouble.html

They do not "support it."  This is probably for security reasons.
