If you choose to not restrict the use of a community to specific network
management stations, you do not need to list the manager addresses on this
screen. You can use this screen to just configure community names and to set
the MIB View and Write Access for each community.
All community names that you create using this screen can be used to access
the switch into which the Switch Management Module is installed. Any
management station using the correct community name may access the switch
with the corresponding MIB View and Write Access levels.
If you want to restrict access to one or more specific management stations for
a given SNMP community, listing the addresses of those stations on this screen
creates that limitation. For each SNMP Community, you can authorize up to
ten management stations by entering their IP and/or IPX addresses into the
Manager Address field.
Enter the appropriate value in each of the above fields (use the [Tab] key
or arrow keys to move from one field to the next).
Press [Enter], then [S] (for Save), and the new SNMP Community configu-
ration is automatically activated.
