JUNOS Simple Configuration Example for SNMP

‎10-13-2010 06:21 AM


Product: Juniper Routers running JUNOS (routers from M and T series) also routers from J series (versions packet based under 9.3, Flow based with some additionnal statement, the same on SRX.

Version: Every version


Network Topology:




Description:  here is the minimum configuration statement to configure SNMP V1/V2






 User@M7i_Paris> show configuration snmp


community public {
    authorization read-only;




With this simple configuration statement the router will answer to snmp request done with the "public" word used as community.

Assuming of course that the router has an IP address and an IP connection to the SNMP browser

It will answer to V1 or V2c snmp requests


This is quite a very simple configuration but we always try to find the minimum configuration statements to have a precise fonctionality working.



Hope this will help some of you (the newest ones to Junos)
