Can someone explain why I don't get a timeout when I use the community string "public" even if I don't have it
defined in my snmpd.conf file. It doesn't return data but it also doesn't timeout. See example below.
rocommunity nobody

[root at L703108 pgsql]# snmpwalk -v 1 -c public ifMIB

[root at L703108 pgsql]# snmpwalk -v 1 -c xyz ifMIB
Timeout: No Response from

[root at L703108 pgsql]# snmpwalk -v 1 -c nobody ifMIB
IF-MIB::ifIndex.1 = INTEGER: 1
IF-MIB::ifIndex.2 = INTEGER: 2
IF-MIB::ifIndex.3 = INTEGER: 3
IF-MIB::ifIndex.4 = INTEGER: 4
IF-MIB::ifIndex.5 = INTEGER: 5
IF-MIB::ifIndex.6 = INTEGER: 6
