snmp.conf - snmp configuration file for cups DESCRIPTION
The snmp.conf file configures how the standard CUPS network backends (http, https, ipp, ipps, lpd, snmp, and socket) access printer infor- mation 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
The following directives are understood by the CUPS network backends. Consult the on-line help for detailed descriptions: Address @IF(name) Address @LOCAL Address address Sends SNMP broadcast queries 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". 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 "off". MaxRunTime seconds Specifies the maximum number of seconds that the SNMP backend will scan the network for printers. The default is 120 seconds (2 min- utes). SEE ALSO

snmp - cups snmp backend SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/cups/backend/snmp ip-address-or-hostname lpinfo -v --include-schemes snmp DESCRIPTION
The CUPS SNMP backend provides legacy discovery and identification of network printers using SNMPv1. When used for discovery through the scheduler, the backend will list all printers that respond to a broadcast SNMPv1 query with the "public" community name. Additional queries are then sent to printers that respond in order to determine the correct device URI, make and model, and other information needed for printing. In the first form, the SNMP backend is run directly by the user to look up the device URI and other information when you have an IP address or hostname. This can be used for programs that need to configure print queues where the user has supplied an address but nothing else. In the second form, the SNMP backend is run indirectly using the lpinfo(8) command. The output provides all printers detected via SNMP on the configured broadcast addresses. Note: no broadcast addresses are configured by default. MIBS
The CUPS SNMP backend uses the information from the Host, Printer, and Port Monitor MIBs along with some vendor private MIBs and intelli- gent port probes to determine the correct device URI and make and model for each printer. CONFIGURATION
The SNMP backend reads the /etc/cups/snmp.conf configuration file, if present, to set the default broadcast address, community name, and logging level. The configuration file is documented in cups-snmp.conf(5). The DebugLevel value can be overridden using the CUPS_DEBUG_LEVEL environment variable and the MaxRunTime value can be overridden using the CUPS_MAX_RUN_TIME environment variable. SEE ALSO
