No community is defined. Default to read–only access if not specified.
Global Configuration mode
You can not specify
You can use the view name to restrict the access rights of a community string.
When it is specified:
An internal security name is generated.
The internal security name for SNMPv1 and SNMPv2 security models is
mapped to an internal group name.
The internal group name for SNMPv1 and SNMPv2 security models is
mapped to a view name. If ro is specified, then read-view and notify-view
are mapped. If rw is specified, then read-view, notify-view, and write-view
The community name may include any printable characters except a double
quote or question mark. Enclose the string in double quotes to include spaces
within the name. The surrounding quotes are not used as part of the name.
The CLI does not filter illegal characters and may accept entries up to the
first illegal character or reject the entry entirely.
The following example configures community access string public to permit
administrative access to SNMP at an administrative station with IP address
console(config)# snmp-server community public su
for su, which has an access to the whole MIB.
