Q8. You have confugured SNMP service on your NT network. How can you limit the access to SNMP service Agents?

A. Disable Anonymous and Guest accounts.

B. Assign Password to the MIBs.

C. Configure the server to accept SNMP packets from specified hosts only.

D. Assign Login and Password to the SNMP service.

Correct Answer: B


SNMP uses what is called "community name" to give access to the SNMP service ( MIBs). All hosts belonging to the same community can access the MIBs. The default name for the community name is "public". In otherwords, community name acts like "password". You can also limit the access to SNMP service by allowing only specific hosts to have access to the service. By default, all hosts are allowed access to SNMP service.
