Configuring SNMP

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a protocol for monitoring and controlling communication devices in a network by accessing a Management Information Base (MIB). Configure these settings according to the purpose of use and environment of the machine.
The machine supports SNMPv1 and SNMPv3. You can also use both at the same time. Trap notification is not supported.
When SNMP management software is installed on the network, you can use the software to configure, monitor, and control the machine remotely from a computer. For more information, see the manual of the software you are using.
SNMPv1
SNMPv1 defines the scope of communication using information called a "community name." As the community name is sent to the network in plain text, the security of the network is vulnerable. To ensure network security, disable SNMPv1 and use SNMPv3. When SNMPv1 is disabled, you will not be able to use some functions such as obtaining information from the machine using the printer driver.
SNMPv3
SNMPv3 communicates using user information for SNMPv3. This protocol enables you to configure the authentication and encryption in the user information to monitor and control communication devices on the network with a solid security system.
 
This section describes how to configure the settings using Remote UI from a computer.
On the operation panel, select [Menu] in the [Home] screen, and then select [Preferences] to configure the settings. However, the operation panel can only be used to enable or disable SNMPv1 and SnMPv3. [SNMP Settings]
Administrator privileges are required. The machine must be restarted to apply the settings.
Required Preparations
To configure SNMPv3, you must enable TLS. Using TLS
