This has become a popular question. The NSS will send SNMP information (configured traps) but you will not be able to poll it as if it were a server. There are no values to join community or for authentication. From the sounds of it, you were able to correctly configure MibViewer, as the traps will go out port 162. I will look further into this and I will post as to what kind of polling can we actually do.
We are not able to actually request information from the NSS, all we can do is configure traps and wait for the events to occur. The main reason is that we are not able to install an agent on the device.
All I can capture are traps and requesting anything just gets ignored.
I'm curious how Cisco, one of the biggest proponents of SNMP, created a device that does not completely implement SNMP. This implementation of SNMP is only useful for logging applications, and is totally inadequate for monitoring applications that need to know the current status of SNMP values at all times.
Are there any plans to complete the currently incomplete SNMP implementation for the NSS4000? If so, is there a schedule for it?
