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).
The following directives are understood by the CUPS network backends:
Address @IF(name)Address @LOCALAddress address
Sends SNMP broadcast queries (for discovery) to the specified
address(es). There is no default for the broadcast address.
Specifies the community name to use. Only a single community
name may be specified. The default community name is "public".
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 onHostNameLookups off
Specifies whether the addresses of printers should be converted
to hostnames or left as numeric IP addresses. The default is
Specifies the maximum number of seconds that the SNMP backend
will scan the network for printers. The default is 120 seconds
