Steps

  1. Log on to your Mac OS X terminal using an account with sudo privileges.

  5. Rename the original snmpd.conf file with the following command:
    sudo mv /etc/snmpd.conf /etc/snmpd.conf.old
  6. Run the SNMP configuration utility to configure a basic snmpd.conf file, using the following command:

    Note: Use a basic read-only community string like public.
  7. Confirm the service has restarted by executing the following command:
    sudo /sbin/service -list OR restart
  8. Open System Preferences > Security and confirm that the firewall is configured to allow all connections on port 161.
