SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is a standard network management protocol (based on TCP/IP) to monitor and map network availability, performance, and error rates when a printer is added in Celiveo Web Admin. To identify the different printer types after the printer is contacted, the SNMP protocol retrieves information such as the system description, system type, printer serial number, and printer model name.

Set SNMP v1/v2 settings

Setting Activity
[Enable SNMP v1/v2] Enabled by default.
[Community Name] Enter the community name of the printer type required during the communication between Celiveo Web Admin and the printer.
The request messages are accepted only if the community name in the message matches the community name of the printer type specified on the printer web page.

Set SNMP v3 settings

Setting Activity
[Enable SNMP v3] Enable SNMP v3 settings.
[User Name] Enter the user name required during authentication while contacting the printer.
[Context Name] Enter the context name of the printer type required during the communication between Celiveo Web Admin and the printer.
The request messages are accepted only if the context name in the message matches the context name of the printer type specified on the printer web page.
[Authentication Protocol (Hash)] The authentication protocol is used for proper authentication by ensuring the identity of the users, and the correct and appropriate encryption mechanism for security purposes.
Select one of the options:
  • [None]
  • [MD5]: a message digest algorithm
  • [SHA1]: an optional alternative algorithm
[Authentication Password] Enter an alphanumeric password of 8 to 12 characters that is required for the authentication mechanism.
[Privacy Protocol (Encryption)] Privacy protocols allow for encryption of SNMP v3 messages to ensure confidentiality of data. It is a secondary security constraint for SNMP v3 to ensure privacy of the request for the proper channeling of a response.
Select one of the options:
  • [None]: No Privacy Protocol
  • [DES]: Data Encryption Standard (DES) mode of encryption
  • [AES128]: 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) mode of encryption
  • [AES192]: 192-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) mode of encryption
  • [AES256]: 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) mode of encryption
  • [TripleDES]: Triple Data Encryption Standard mode of encryption
