  13. In the Global Setup area, in the
    Contact Information
    field, type contact information for the SNMP administrator for this BIG-IP system.
    The contact information is a MIB-II simple string variable. The contact information usually includes both a user name and an email address.
  14. In the
    Machine Location
    field, type the location of the system, such as
    Network Closet 1
    .
    The machine location is a MIB-II simple string variable.
  15. In the
    Client Allow List
    area, for the
    Type
    setting, select either
    Host
    or
    Network
    , depending on whether the IP address you specify is a host system or a subnet.
    By default, SNMP is enabled only for the BIG-IP system loopback interface (127.0.0.1).
  16. In the
    Address
    field, type either an IP address or network address from which the SNMP agent can accept requests.
  17. If you selected
    Network
    in step 2, type the netmask in the
    Mask
    field.
  18. From the
    Type
    list, select either
    IPv4
    or
    IPv6
    .
  19. In the
    Community
    field, type the name of the SNMP community for which you are assigning an access level.
  20. From the
    Source
    list, select
    All
    , or select
    Select
    and type the source IP address in the field that displays.
  21. In the
    OID
    field, type the OID for the top-most node of the SNMP tree to which the access applies.
  22. From the
    Access
    list, select an access level, either
    Read Only
    or
    Read/Write
    .
    When you set the access level of a community or user to read/write, and an individual data object has a read-only access type, access to the object remains read-only. In short, the access level or type that is the most secure takes precedence when there is a conflict.
  23. In the
    User Name
    field, type the name of the user for which you are assigning an access level.
  24. In the Authentication area, from the
    Type
    list, select a type of authentication to use, and then type and confirm the user’s password.
  25. In the Privacy area, from the
    Protocol
    list, select a privacy protocol, and either type and confirm the user’s password, or select the
    Use Authentication Password
    check box.
