'snmpwalk' command fails with "Timeout" error on SecurePlatform OS Technical Level
Symptoms
  • When the user runs the snmpwalk command locally on the SecurePlatform OS, the command fails:
    # snmpwalk -v 2c -c public 127.0.0.1
    Timeout: No Response from 127.0.0.1
Cause
  • The local user is not properly defined in /etc/snmp/snmpd.users.conf file.

  • The community names defined in the /etc/snmp/snmpd.users.conf file and in the /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf file do not match.

  • The community name used in the snmpwalk command is not the same as defined in the /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf file

  • The snmpd daemon is bound to a specific interface / IP Address.
    For example, if the output of the netstat command is "udp4 0 0 172.26.252.18.161 *.*", it means that the snmpd daemon is bound to IP address 172.26.252.18 and only responds to SNMP queries on that address.
