Enable SNMP on BeagleBone Black


I want to enable SNMP on BeagleBone Black, I tried net-snmp using with the link. (http://www.cloud-rocket.com/2013/08/compiling-and-installing-net-snmp-for-beaglebone/) but I didn’t understand the step 6. Anybody know teach me how I make this, or have other form to enable SNMP on BeagleBone Black.

I use BeagleBone Black version B and Linux BeagleBone 3.8.13 #1 SMP Wed Sep 4 09:09:32 CEST 2013 armv7l GNU/Linux.

If you are running Debian (you do not say which distro you are using) then
net-snmp is already available, just use:-

apt-get install snmp snmpd


Hi David,

I forgot write the distribution, I use Angstrom, and with this command didn’t work.

opkg install snmp snmpd ?

No because in angstrom don’t have the avaible package.

Unknown package ‘snmp’.
Unknown package ‘snmpd’.
