this may seem like a silly question but I really cant get round to understanding why it is so.
when a cisco box is configured to send traps, a community string is also required.
however as far as i can understand the receving management station does not use the community string.
So what is the point of using a community string when sending a trap ?
What is considered best practise for this config ? Using a community string that has no real meaning (ie not the same for snmpget access) ? or other ?
