[ECOS] SNMP authentication problem

I know its place, but I asked as the basic of SNMP, when I entered lines below to /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf file:

createUser username MD5  "password"
rwuser username auth

it should create a user "username" with password "password" and encrypt&cypt the coming-coming packets according to MD5.  But, neither it creates a user in usm nor it encrypts&cypts the packets. The thing I want to learn is why it doesn't do it. When I aim to get any parameter from agent, agent says there isn't any user recorded. Am i doing sth wrong?
