the LYNX APPolo Control System. More general information on SNMP can be found

General Info on SNMP:
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is a standardized protocol (IETF
RFC1157) that has been developed for the supervision and management of IP
network equipment. Three major versions of SNMP have been defined over the
years. The capabilities of SNMPv1 have been extended by SNMPv2. While all
communication over the network is basically open (and can potentially be
monitored by 3rd parties), SNMPv3 adds some possibilities for secured login and
transmission. However, SNMPv3 does not provide any significant functional
additions. See section “Network Security” below and [1].
