Installing SNMP on an RHEL server without online connection



Hi, I've been trying to install SNMP on a server (RHEL) that doesn't have outside connection (I cannot allow connection due to security reasons). So yum isn't available for me to install the net-snmp packages necessary to run the SNMP services. I've tried to manually install them by downloading the net-snmp tar.gz files but it seems like I can't use "service snmpd" commands (snmpd: unrecognized service) (this is critical because it can't establish a connection with the core PRTG server otherwise). I've also tried installing the .rpm file but it seems like it requires more dependencies to be downloaded online. (I got the .rpm file from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/net-snmp/files/OldFiles/net-snmp-5.6.x/5.6.1-binaries/). My question is, did I get the right .rpm file? If so, what else do I need to download to get SNMP working? If not, is there any other way I can get the SNMP going?

Thank you!
