Using SNMPUtilG

You can run SNMPUtilG from the Start menu (where it is called SNMP Query Utility), or from the command prompt or Run line (by typing snmputilg).

The tool starts with the loopback address, the object identifier ., and the "public" community selected. These values can be changed to select another system by IP address, select another object identifier farther down the tree, or select another community as necessary.

If another system IP address is selected, then that system must be running the SNMP service. The target system must also be configured to allow access from the network address from which the tool is run. By default, Windows 2000 allows access from all other IP addresses.

If another community is selected, then the community must exist, and READ privileges must be granted to that community. You can verify and add communities using the SNMP Service. The ability to configure community permissions exists only in systems running Windows XP Professional, Windows 2000 or Windows NT version 4.0 Service Pack 4. The ability to restrict access by IP address exists in all versions of Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows NT.
