Still worry about how to Configure SNMP Community ? If so, following the best way to set up Cisco SNMP below:

Enable SNMP Community Strings
This procedure is the same for both Cisco routers and Cisco IOS software-based XL Catalyst Switches.
1. Telnet to the router:
prompt#telnet 172.16.99.20

2. Enter the enable password at the prompt in order to enter the enable mode:
Router>enable
Password:
Router#

3. Display the running configuration and look for the SNMP information:
Router#show running-config
Building configuration...
....
....
Note: If no SNMP information is present, continue with these steps. If any SNMP commands are listed, you can modify or disable them.

4. Go into the configuration mode:
Router#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End
with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#

5. Use this command in order to enable the Read-only (RO) community string:
Router(config)#snmp-server community public RO
where "public" is the Read-only community string.

6. Use this command in order to enable the Read-write (RW) community string:
Router(config)#snmp-server community private RW
where "private" is the Read-write community string.

7. Exit out of the configuration mode and return to the main prompt:
Router(config)#exit
Router#

8. Write the modified configuration to nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) to save the settings:
Router#write memory
Building configuration...
[OK]
Router#
