Techopedia explains Simple Network Management Protocol Version 2 (SNMPv2)
SNMPv2 changed a number of aspects from version 1, which led to numerous problems upon its introduction. This was due to security issues in the original SNMP, which eventually led to the proliferation of different SNMPv2 variants because of the many ways proposed to add security to SNMP with no real universal agreement on how to go about the change. In essence, SNMPv2 created protocols that people are simply not used to seeing in TCP/IP.
SNMPv2 variants include the following:
- SNMPv2c - Community-based
- SNMPv2u - User-based
- SNMPv2* - Unofficial standard created by a commercial consortium
