SNMP Packets

hi guys

I've configured snmp on some linux

rocommunity  com_read  x.x.x.10
rwcommunity  com_write x.x.x.10
Now one of my coworkers asked to do the same that he does on windows for my linux....

But I have no idea how to configure that basically when SNMP is configure there is a tab that says

Accept SNMP packets from these hosts

since we don't want this window to accept SNMP from any host

so my question how can I configure this on my linux hosts to accept SNMP packets from specific hosts.
Thanks a lot
I attached the SNMP Win Conf (snmp windows.doc)

I was thinking maybe using hosts.allow/deny

but I am not sure how to use it


basically I want any kind of connection to my server but SNMP only 6 servers

how should I ply with hosts.deny/allow or SNMP to do this?

hi again

by the way I have to configure this SNMP stuff on a firewall that is part of a SNMP project
so they want to allow only some hosts to send SNMP packets a across this Linux firewall

Since I still don't get how to do it on SNMP like in Windows

I was thinking using hosts.allow and deny like this

snmpd : 

snmpd : ALL
but I read this
# Never configure TCP Wrappers on firewall host.
# Put TCP Wrappers behind a firewall systems as TCP Wrappers is no substitute for netfilter or pf firewall.


so any guidance on SNMP way?
thanks a lot
