In looking at the command reference, I don't see anywhere to specify a RW community vs a RO community.

In the 7.2 SNMP configuration guide (at
http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/....htm#wp1042030)
, it says that you just "specify a key", like this:
hostname(config)# snmp-server community key

(no place for RW or RO)

On an IOS router, on the other hand, it seems to work fine, like this:
Router(config)#snmp-server community test rw
