    :confused:
    I started up iftop and noticed that my system (MBP 5,3 10.6.4) is querying a printer on my home network with snmp. I checked the plist file and the "disable" parameter is checked. How do I turn it off? Thanks.

    snmpd plist configuration to disable snmpd

    This is my config:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    	<key>Disabled</key>
    	<true/>
    	<key>Label</key>
    	<string>org.net-snmp.snmpd</string>
    	<key>OnDemand</key>
    	<false/>
    	<key>Program</key>
    	<string>/usr/sbin/snmpd</string>
    	<key>ProgramArguments</key>
    	<array>
    		<string>snmpd</string>
    		<string>-f</string>
    	</array>
    	<key>ServiceIPC</key>
    	<false/>
    </dict>
    </plist>
    As I read the file, the disable key is true and ondemand is false. Is there another way for this daemon to be started? I don't want it on. The only reference information I can find is old (2008) and refers to an obsolete file (/etc/hostconfig.)

    Can someone point me to the reference material on how Mac OS X 10.6 works? Is this forum the best place to find OS-level detail information? I'm looking for something similar to the fedoraforum site for fedora linux info sharing.

    Thanks!
