Hi Hifza,

Please use the SNMP Tester from the probe host and perform a Scan Interfaces. Enter the correct IP address and SNMP community name so that the Tester is able to establish a connection. Use SNMPv2 and copy the results into a text file and attach it to your answer (if SNMPv2 does not work, also try SNMPv1).

Kindly forward the results for further analysis.

Best regards, Felix
