Listening on multiple network interfacesΒΆ

  1. I need my receiving entity (CommandResponder or Notification Receiver) to listen for SNMP messages on multiple network interfaces. How do I do that with pysnmp?
  1. Simply register multiple network transports with your SNMP engine. Each transport would be bound to an individual local transport endpoint (for instance, IP address & UDP port pair).
 # Security setup would follow
 ...
 # Setup first transport endpoint
 config.addSocketTransport(
     snmpEngine,
     udp.domainName + (1,),
     udp.UdpSocketTransport().openServerMode(('127.0.0.1', 162))
 )

 # Setup second transport endpoint
 config.addSocketTransport(
     snmpEngine,
     udp.domainName + (2,),
     udp.UdpSocketTransport().openServerMode(('192.168.1.1', 162))
 )
 # Receiver callback function implementation and Dispatcher invocation
 # would follow
 ...

Notice extended transport domain specification (udp.domainName) in
the code above. There we register each transport endpoint under distinct
OID, however always within the canonical transport domain OID.
