I have a HUAWEI S5720 Switch(manage IP:, and I opened the snmp service of it:

enter image description here

the configuration is:

snmp-agent local-engineid 800007DB0314A0F8D32960

snmp-agent trap source Vlanif2                                                 
snmp-agent trap enable                                                         

Now how can I check if it works fine?

My case is, in my manage Server(, which can access the, when I use nmap to scan the Switch:

[root@localhost network-scripts]# nmap -p 16-3000

Starting Nmap 6.40 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2019-06-04 18:29 CST
Nmap scan report for
Host is up (0.016s latency).
Not shown: 2982 closed ports
23/tcp  open  telnet
80/tcp  open  http
443/tcp open  https

you see, there only shows 23, 80, 443 ports, there is no port 161. who can tell me why the SNMP do not work?

    Run the scan as: nmap -sU
