Monitoring the traffic of WinXP-machines is working. But on Win7-machines not. SNMP services are activated an UDP-Port 161 and 162 are open?

What could be my problem, what can I do?

you can change the community string in the device settings in PRTG so any community string can be used.

The manual would have told you that in no time!

please check the access rights in the SNMP service.

Is your win7 PC accepting SNMP requests from any IP?

Thanks, I´ve found a reason of my problem, but not a complete solution.

The "client" has to accept the community of the server. The "client" has to accept recieving SNMP-pakets of the PTRG-server, therefor the IP must be accepted.

But in Win7 is the standard community "public". I would like to have habe another name. As client it´s no problem to accept other names. But I can´t find an option to change the comunity name of the prtg-server-machine.

Now I can recieve SNMP information from XP and Win7 as well. But only by using the public community.

regards
