I am configuring snmp so I can use the Cisco Network Assistant to monitor part of the network. I have created two communities with different names. Something like this: baycom and baycomrw. The one with read and write access is associated with an access list that permits only one host to make the changes.
I have configured my workstation with the CNA application and I connected to the read-only community but even though is read-only I can still make changes to my switches. Can someone explain why?
The default CNA setup is read/write but why is my switch allowing it if the community I am connected to is RO?
Thanks for your help.
