General tab

This tab allows configuring the system, meaning the host and its administrator. It contains notifications (alarms and system events) which will be integrated into the available MIBs.

The option Enable the agent allows enabling the module. It is however possible to configure the data for this screen even if the module has not been enabled.

SNMPv3 (recommended) Enables version 3 of SNMP, the recommended version as it is equipped with more secure tools (security tools such as authentication, encryption, timing control, etc.)
Since December 2002, a new standard has been introduced for SNMP, providing a significant advance in security. The configuration requires the following parameters: SNMPv3 offers authentication and encryption methods and resolves certain security issues from earlier versions.
SNMPv1/v2c Enables versions v1/v2C of SNMP. V1 is the first version of the protocol. The only check made by this version concerns the “Community” character string. Version v2C is a version that improves the types of operations in SNMPv2p and uses “community” character string security from SNMPv1.
SNMPv1/v2c et SNMPv3 Enables all three versions of SNMP.
