Hi Expert,

I need to enable SNMP ASA5510 for monitoring. I want to enable READ-ONLY snmp access.
Could you advise it can be done? I tried "snmp-server community blabla RO" but it says invalid.
Could you advise?

    Hi, for security reasons tha ASA will only allow ReadOnly SNMP access, that is why it outputs an invalid command message. You just write down "snmp-server community blabla" and it is meant as RO access. From version 8.2 and later, you can add some privacy commands just for authentication, but it is still ReadOnly access.
