SNMP V1 provides a weak method of authenticating SNMP requests, using the ‘community name’. This optional parameter allows you to specify the SNMP V1 community name that will be honoured by SNMPAgent. Any SNMP request that does not include the correct community name will be ignored. Defaults to nothing. We strongly recommend that you choose a community name and keep it secret.
Community is now deprecated, but is still honoured for backwards compatibility. New implementations should use ROCommunity and /or RWCommunity.
# Use a secret community.
