I've just installed cisco works with LMS 3.

But when i wanted to add devices using snmp v3 encryption i do not have any fields for encryption (there is only username/password/engineid/type of authentication). Lack of private encryption password or type of encryption. Does it mean that cisco works does not support full snmp v3 with encryption ?

snmp-server view cview mib-2 included

snmp-server view cview cisco included

snmp-server view cview internet included

snmp-server view cview v1default included

snmp-server view hdview mib-2 included

snmp-server view hdview internet included

snmp-server view hdview cisco excluded

snmp-server user cw2k netops v3 auth md5 XXXXXX

snmp-server user cwhd helpdesk v3

snmp-server ifindex persist

snmp-server trap-timeout 120

snmp-server queue-length 30
