I go to settings, network then snmp . Snmp v1/2c is enabled and see a place for community name but do not see where to input the get community name, set community name and trap community name. I need to get this done asap.

all I see is

Settings
SNMP Version 1,2c Enabled  
Allow SNMP Set  Allow SNMP variables to be set
SNMP Community  
Enable PPM Mib  This will enable the Printer Port Monitor Mib under the community name public.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SNMP Version 3 Enabled  

 
SNMPv3 Read/Write User  
SNMPv3 Read/Write Password  Password MUST be at least 8 characters.

 
SNMPv3 Read Only User  
SNMPv3 Read Only Password  Password MUST be at least 8 characters.

 
SNMPv3 Minimum Authentication Level  No Authentication, No Privacy Authentication, No Privacy Authentication, Privacy  
SNMPv3 Authentication Hash  MD5 SHA1  
SNMPv3 Privacy Algorithm  DES AES-128 AES-192 AES-256

you need Lexmark SmartSolutions software on a PC and use the software to configure the printer from a Computer.

It is a network printer and I can get to settings through web interface. I still need the software for network printer configuration?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
