Symptoms

After changing the SNMP service configuration to a community other than "public", examining SNMP packets will still show the community set as public.

This does not affect the functionality of the service, systems that wish to read SNMP traps from an appliance will still need to specify the correct community if it has been changed from public.

However examining the SNMP trap packet itself, using tcpdump, wireshark, snoop, etc., will show the community still set as public.

e.g.

The SNMP configuration is changed such that the community is set to some other value than public:

There is a response when using the correct "someothervalue" community.

 

Changes

 The SNMP configuration has been changed so that the community is set to some other value than "public".
