SNMP with Remote Probe




I have a remote probe with 300 sensors (vmware, netapp, switch, printer....), all work except all the snmp sensors (no response error #2003)

Before moving to a remote probe, I tested with an local probe & core and all worked good...

I tried to increase snmp timeout to 60s but nothing :(

Sorry for my bad english best regard

From the remote probe machine, please run our SNMP Tester and check if you can access the counters / OIDs in case.

thank for reply

I test with your SNMP Tester the uptime of one device (SNMP v2c)

----------------------- New Test ----------------------- Paessler SNMP Tester 3.2 Device:

08/01/2013 21:01:56 (1 ms) : Start using SNMP V2c 08/01/2013 21:01:56 (3 ms) : ------- 08/01/2013 21:01:56 (4 ms) : Value: 1066428684 08/01/2013 21:01:56 (4 ms) : Done

If you add a SNMP Uptime sensor in PRTG, does that yield a result?

result : This sensor has not received any data since startup

Before moving to a remote probe, everything worked good with a local probe & server
