What is the function of a community string?


  • Community string is like a user id or password-provides authentication.
  • Sent along with each Simple network management protocol (SNMP) get-request- allowing access to a remote router՚s or other device՚s statics.
  • Only if community string is correct, the device responds with the requested information.
  • Used only by devices which support SNMOv1 and SNMPv2c protocol.

Types of community string:

  • SNMP read-only community string
    • Enables a remote device to retrieve “read-only” information from a device.
    • Intermapper uses information from devices on its maps.
  • SNMP read-write community string:
    • Allows information request from a device and modifying settings on that device.
    • Intermapper does not use the read-write community string- never modifies any settings on its devices.
  • SNMP trap community string:
    • When a device sends SNMP Traps to Intermapper.
    • Intermapper accepts any SNMP Trap community string.
