    Net SNMP snmpwalk :no response from localhost

    I have downloaded net-snmp from and compiled it in fedora. snmptranslate command works but

    snmpwalk -v 2c -c public localhost system

    gives timeout: no response from localhost

    I placed snmpd.conf file in /usr/local/etc/snmp

    Is this the problem with conf file or soomething else... I have used the same conf file in ubuntu nd there snmpwalk works

    Is the service running?

    try /etc/init.d/snmpd status (or something similar)

  3. #3
    ls /etc/init.d doesnot list snmpd in it

  4. $spacer_open

    1. place snmpd.conf in directory- /usr/local/share/snmp/
    2.Then you run /usr/local/sbin/snmpd
    This will surely work!!

    Check how you are running snmpconf
    1. run snmpconf
    Now choose access control setup
    give community name and system ip
    After that give finished, finished and quit.
    Now you overwrite snmpd.conf in /usr/local/share/snmp/
    Restart snmpd service.Now check for output.
