Configuring the SNMP Server on the JunosE Router


Access to the SNMP server on the router by an SNMP client is governed by a proprietary SNMP community table. This table identifies communities that have read-only, read-write, or administrative permission to the SNMP Management Information Base (MIB) stored on a particular server.

When an SNMP server receives a request, the server extracts the client’s IP address and the community name. The SNMP server searches the community table for a matching community.

  • If a match is found, its access list name is used to validate the IP address.

    • If the access list name is null, the IP address is accepted.

    • If an invalid IP address results, an SNMP authentication error is sent to the SNMP client.

  • If a match is not found, an SNMP authentication error results.

To configure the SNMP agent on the JunosE router:

  1. Switch to the virtual router for which you want to create an SRC client.

  2. Enable the SNMP agent.

  3. Configure at least one authorized SNMP read-write community (SNMPv1/v2c), which provides SNMP client access.

  4. (Optional) Configure a read-only community.
