SNMP ACL File - Allow connections from managers on all IP addresses

Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to configure the SNMP ACL file for a JVM such that ACL is enabled (community strings required, etc.) but that SNMP requests will be accepted from any source, rather than a specified list? I've tried the below:
acl = {
{
communities = communityPwd1
access = read-only
managers = 0.0.0.0
}
}
but that doesn't seem to work. So far, I've only be able to get SNMP ACL to work by explicitly stating each of the IP addresses that I want to connect from in the "managers" list.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Regards,

Adrian

PS I am not referring to the "-Dcom.sun.management.snmp.interface=0.0.0.0" here, I've added this already, but as I understand it this just allows the SNMP agent to recieve requests sent to any IP address (that is valid for the machine on which the JVM is running, obv) and not requests from any IP address
