SNMPv3 Encryption doesn't work?

Wed May 22, 2019 6:35 am

Trying to setup SNMPv3 on a few routers that are polled across the internet
If I set 'security' type to Authorized (no encryption) it works fine. But 'Private' doesn't work
when I turn on logging on the MikroTik I see
Packet(v3)from: [Source IP]
v3 user: [Username]
bad v3 packet security level: 1
v3 erro: 0 unsupported security level
I've tried both AES and DES
The poller is Solarwinds which has options for DES56/AES128/AES192/AES256 have tried all of them and get exactly the same message on the MikroTik device

If I can't use encryption it entirely defeats the purpose of SNMPv3
