NAME
       snmp - cups snmp	backend	(deprecated)

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/lib/cups/backend/snmp ip-address-or-hostname
       /usr/libexec/cups/backend/snmp ip-address-or-hostname
       lpinfo -v --include-schemes snmp

DESCRIPTION
       The  DEPRECATED CUPS SNMP backend provides legacy discovery and identi-
       fication	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.	 Addi-
       tional  queries	are then sent to printers that respond in order	to de-
       termine 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.

ENVIRONMENT
       The DebugLevel value can	be overridden using the	CUPS_DEBUG_LEVEL envi-
       ronment variable.  The MaxRunTime value can  be	overridden  using  the
       CUPS_MAX_RUN_TIME environment variable.

FILES
       The  SNMP backend reads the /usr/local/etc/cups/snmp.conf configuration
       file, if	present, to set	the default broadcast address, community name,
       and logging level.

NOTES
       The  CUPS SNMP backend is deprecated and	will no	longer be supported in
       a future	version	of CUPS.

CONFORMING TO
       The CUPS	SNMP backend uses the information from the Host, Printer,  and
       Port  Monitor  MIBs along with some vendor private MIBs and intelligent
       port probes to determine	the correct device URI and make	and model  for
       each printer.
