This is my first time trying to use and configure snmp v3 on my cisco routers and switches.
Q1) for the engine ID, should I use local or remote?
Q2) if use remote, how and where can I find out what is the remote engine ID?
I am using HP Openview on Windows 2003
Q3) a friend used local engineID and it works for snmpv3. But the more I read documents on the cisco website the more I think it should be remote. So why and how does the local engineID can work for snmpv3?
Q4) another friend tried to use Ciscoworks for the snmpv3, but the ciscoworks does not prompt him for the option of "encrypted" or username/password.
What is lacking?
Any evaluation software that I can use?
Pls revert asap.
