Configuring SNMP on Checkpoint Secureplatform

step 1: service snmpd restart
step 2: edit /etc/snmp/snmpd.users.conf and replace public with your actual
snmp community string
step 3: service snmpd restart
step 4: netstat -an | grep 161

for checkpoint snmpd port 260:

step 1: modify the $FWDIR/conf/snmp.C file and place the actual snmp
community inside the read and write (). If you leave the write empty,
it will use "private" as the community string. This is a security risk.

step 2: run sysconfig and start the checkpoint snmpd extension

step 3: perform cpstop;cpstart

step 4: netstat -an | grep 260
