Indicates whether InfoPrint has established Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) communications with the output device that this actual destination represents.

GUI label

SNMP is active


AIX, BSD, CUPS, PSF, IPP, Passthrough


Non-settable, single-valued

Allowed Values

InfoPrint sets this value to one of these fixed values:

  • true
  • false

Default Value

If you have defined a value for the destination-tcpip-internet-address attribute and InfoPrint has established SNMP communication with the printer device, true; otherwise false.

Usage Guidelines

If you are using SNMPv3 and the snmp-active attribute is not set to true, the context-name attribute might not be set. Some printers require the context-name attribute to be set to a specific printer vendor value to allow SNMPv3 connections.
