SNMP Dictionary Attack attacks a set of IP addresses with SNMP queries to attempt to determine the SNMP community strings using a dictionary of community strings. You can use one of the dictionaries provided by SolarWinds, or import your own. You can also mutate a dictionary. For more information, see Edit Dictionaries.

  1. Click File > New Database.
  2. Select a path and enter a name for your new database, and then click Save.
  3. To add IP addresses manually, complete the following task.
    1. Click Edit > Add IP Addresses.
    2. Enter the IP address and click Add for each device you want to add.
    3. Click OK.
  4. To import a list of IP addresses, complete the following procedure.
    1. Click File > Import IP Addresses, and then select the file enter you want to import.

      You can use SolarWinds Ping Sweep or SolarWinds Network Sonar to generate a list of IP addresses. See Deprecated Ping Sweep and Network Sonar.

    2. Browse to the file you want to import, and then click Open.
    3. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the import process.
  5. Click Edit > Dictionary.
  6. Select the dictionary to use during the attack, and then click OK.

    You can also edit, mutate, or create new dictionaries using the SolarWinds Dictionary Editor. See Edit Dictionaries.

  7. Click Run > Start SNMP Attack.
