Be 24 meg Thompson Speedtouch snmp enable

We have the Be 24 meg adsl in the office which uses their own Thompson Speedtouch 716 router. I’ve had some fun tracking down how you enable SNMP. This is what I had to do.

Check if the SNMP_AGENT system service is enabled, mine was not:

 id="typed" id="typed"{Administrator}=>service system list

Idx Name             Protocol         SrcPort  DstPort  Group            State

{Administrator}=>

Turn it on

{Administrator}=>service system modify
name = SNMP_AGENT
[state] = enabled
[log] = false
:service system modify name=SNMP_AGENT state=enabled log=disabled
{Administrator}=>

Add a RO community

{Administrator}=>snmp community add
securityname = ROCommunity
communityname = ******
Please retype communityname for verification.
communityname = ******
:snmp community add securityname=ROCommunity communityname=_DEV_E43BC822A4BAE52F
{Administrator}[snmp community]=>

Where the asterisks are type your chosen community name.

Once this is done I could access the router using SNMP version 1 and my RO community string

    Hi

    I have enabled SNMP on my 716 but have not been able to get anything back from it using standard network tools (such as Prtg).

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

  3. Clive, one of the problems I had was I was using snmp version 2c to try and get data from the router, nothing was happening. When I tried version 1 it was fine. From a unix command line try:

    # snmpwalk -v 1 -c public a.b.c.d

    where public is your community string and a.b.c.d is the address of your router.

    Please can you help?
    I have SpeedTouch 585 on bethere.co.uk.

    I tried enabling SNMP in cli:
    I type this: “snmp community list” yield:
    Read-write SNMP community name : not specified
    Read-only SNMP community name : *****

    I have changed the password with:
    snmp community modify ROCommunity —> to public

    I can still not get any values from it when testing with getif.

    Can get values from the great many other devices I monitor.

    Help will be much appreciated.

    I have noticed the issue seems to be Static IP mode on ETHoA. Multi IP mode gives no SNMP issues at all. The issue for me only seems on the external side. I have run winmerge and compared config files, seems like there is nothing stopping it. very annoying…

    I’ve practically learnt the CLI commands inside out trying to get SNMP to work, I was also using v2c in my snmpwalk. That would explain why I could see the service running but no SNMP port open. Arrgh!

    Changed to v1 and it was fine. Thankyou very much!
