Charter HFC Engineer?


SNMPv3 uses TCP.

Also, I never said I had a daemon listening on port 161, the cable modem
would simply reboot if it saw a TCP SYN packet destined to port 161 to IP
address space sitting behind my cable modem.

FYI - Charter engineers responded to me indicating it's a known bug with
this Ubee modem and Ubee is working on a new revision of firmware to fix
the bug.
