Morning..

We have a Pix 506 and I need to turn on SNMP with a Read and Write community

These are the command I have used so for but only managed to get READ...

snmp-server host inside <ip address of system  using Solarwinds>
snmp-server community private
snmp-server enable traps

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
