NAME         top

       snmp.conf - snmp configuration file for cups (deprecated)

DESCRIPTION         top

       The snmp.conf file configures how the standard CUPS network backends
       (http, https, ipp, ipps, lpd, snmp, and socket) access printer
       information using SNMPv1 and is normally located in the /etc/cups
       directory.  Each line in the file can be a configuration directive, a
       blank line, or a comment. Comment lines start with the # character.

       The Community and DebugLevel directives are used by all backends. The
       remainder apply only to the SNMP backend - cups-snmp(8).

DIRECTIVES         top

       The following directives are understood by the CUPS network backends:

       Address @IF(name)

       Address @LOCAL

       Address address
            Sends SNMP broadcast queries (for discovery) to the specified
            address(es).  There is no default for the broadcast address.

       Community name
            Specifies the community name to use.  Only a single community
            name may be specified.  The default community name is "public".
            If no name is specified, all SNMP functions are disabled.

       DebugLevel number
            Specifies the logging level from 0 (none) to 3 (everything).
            Typically only used for debugging (thus the name).  The default
            debug level is 0.

       DeviceURI "regular expression" device-uri [... device-uri]
            Specifies one or more device URIs that should be used for a
            given make and model string.  The regular expression is used to
            match the detected make and model, and the device URI strings
            must be of the form "scheme://%s[:port]/[path]", where "%s"
            represents the detected address or hostname.  There are no
            default device URI matching rules.

       HostNameLookups on

       HostNameLookups off
            Specifies whether the addresses of printers should be converted
            to hostnames or left as numeric IP addresses.  The default is

       MaxRunTime seconds
            Specifies the maximum number of seconds that the SNMP backend
            will scan the network for printers.  The default is 120 seconds
            (2 minutes).

NOTES         top

       CUPS backends are deprecated and will no longer be supported in a
       future feature release of CUPS.  Printers that do not support IPP can
       be supported using applications such as ippeveprinter(1).
