Monitoring APC MasterSwitch via SNMP



The biggest problem here is that I'm new to SNMP, so forgive me for asking questions that are remedial in nature.

The only sensor I can get PRTG to recognize is PING for this device. Tried to manually add the APC Hardware Sensor and got the following error:

"No available interfaces on this device (code: PE049)"

I launched the SNMP Tester software and pointed it to the IP of my Masterswitch, chose SNMP v1 and set the community string, and the results of the test are below -

----------------------- New Test ----------------------- Paessler SNMP Tester 5.1 12/06/2013 14:14:16 (2 ms) : Device: 12/06/2013 14:14:16 (4 ms) : SNMP V1 12/06/2013 14:14:16 (5 ms) : Custom OID 12/06/2013 14:14:18 (2011 ms) : ------- 12/06/2013 14:14:18 (2014 ms) : Value: Error converting OID (SNMP error # -2007) 12/06/2013 14:14:18 (2020 ms) : Done

I'm not sure what to do to get more than just network connectivity (PING) to be reported from this device to PRTG. Any help/direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time.

If you run a "Device Uptime" scan using the SNMP Tester, does that yield a result?
