I have the green light to purchase this software but I would like to have a better understanding of how to implement the software and the associated sensors before doing so. I currently have prtg installed on a hyper-v vm and get the basic sensors for our network. I believe it to be important to understand snmp sensors since this will cover a majority of the sensors that will be in use. Unfortunately I'm not able to get any snmp sensor to connect. Our network consist of some Cisco RV325 routers (Mibs on the website), Cisco SF300-SG300 switches (Mibs on the website) Windows 12 Servers, and Windows workstations. This is the error I get everytime from the SNMP tester

I have: Turned off all firewalls Set community string Tried all versions of SNMP Entered windows credentials Attempted to connect to 127.0.0.1 or localhost
I think I'm missing something with the MIB's. I watched the video on how to import but at this point I feel like I'm lost here. For example if I want to load MIB's for the localhost most of the hardware specs to Hyper-V. For example the nic specs to Microsoft Hyper-V Network Adapter
I have spent many hours to this point and do not feel like I have moved past the initial install.
