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:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_tech_note09186a0080094a13.shtml
PING------------------------
icmp permit any echo-reply inside
Here's cisco doc's on this:

HI ikalmar

Following RW or RO options are not available in cisco ASA Firewalls , and just allows us to configure community only.
snmp-server community [community string] RO (read only)
snmp-server community [community string] RW (read/write)


I wanna know the community configured is RO or RW.

Or by default firewall will suport only SNMP RO string ?? and too Fortigate supports SNMP RO implementation only.

SNMP on ASA is read-only.  This is by design.

Hi Everyone .. One more thing, how Cisco Security Manager  communicates to devices which added for management to it....I hope then it should not be with SNMP....as because only Cisco SNMP RO is there !!!!!

Apps like SDM and ASDM use HTTPS (or HTTP) to communicate with devices.
