Precautions for using SNMP on the firewall

Precautions for using firewall SNMP:
�?When adding users to an SNMP group, local users are not recommended. Instead, it is recommended that Authentication, Authorization, Accounting (AAA) users on the RADIUS server and Huawei Terminal Access Controller Access Control System (HWTACACS) server be used for verification.
�?When the MIB browser or NMS interworks with the firewall, it is recommended that SNMPv2c or SNMPv3 be used to ensure that the MIB browser or NMS can read MIB information from the firewall properly.
�?SNMPv3 is recommended because it outperforms SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c in security.
