Does the pix-501 support multiple SNMP communities? Im trying to add a second one, but the original community string gets removed when I add the new one. If we can have multiple SNMP hosts, then I woud imagine you could have multiple strings. I thought it was like most switches and routers, which can have the following:
snmp-server community STRING1
snmp-server community STRING2
The Pix-501 is currently running on version 6.3(5).
There’s a reason to why Cisco Firewalls don’t support RW. RW is used generally, by network management tools such as Cisco Security Manager, Cisco MARS, CiscoWorks etc. to push configurations, IOS etc. to Cisco products in large masses. In fact, RW can also be used as a mitigation approach. Cisco Firewalls being a defensive product by nature, will not allow this to occur. There could be a possibility of un-stealth-ing the product. Hence, only RO is available. Mitigation approach in Cisco Firewalls can always be done through telnet/ssh, if needed.
Note: Perhaps, it doesn't make sense to use a vulnerable/non-secure protocol such as SNMP to manage a security appliance, unless SNMP v3 is introduced.
