The following properties can be configured below:

Global SNMP settings

In NoTouch Center, select the ThinPrint Hub you want to configure and select the Global SNMP Settings submenu item. Here you can configure the following items.

Global SNMP Settings

Printer Monitoring enabling or disabling the printer monitoring via SNMP
SNMP Version SNMP 1 and 2c

Simplest but least reliable way to send status queries to printers. Only a common community name is required for the setup (default is Public), which is transmitted in plain text.

Secure variant for sending status queries to printers. In addition to a user name, a password must also be stored for the hub and printer to match. The password is hashed either via MD5 or SHA.
All communication between ThinPrint Hub and printer can also be encrypted via DES or AES.

Community Name default: Public
Specification of a network/community under which printers respond to requests. This community name has to be stored for all printers you want to monitor.
Only relevant for SNMP 1 and 2c.
User Name user name which is to be used for authentication
Authentication Type Choice between 2 authentication types
• MD5 (only recommended for test purposes only)
Authentication Passphrase password which is to be used for authentication at the printer via SNMP
Privacy Type Choice between 2 encryption types
• AES (optional)
Privacy Passphrase password which is to be used for encrytion of the SNMP queries (optional)
Enable SNMP Proxy By enabling the SNMP proxy, you can send SNMP queries to the Hubs and obtain status information on the connected printers.
