Due to the staggering amount of users asking the same SNMP questions, i have made this tutorial in order to better help the average users understanding of the Simple Network Management Protocol, and the programs that act asagents to this protocol. For the most part SNMP Admin 1.8 will be the software we deal with the, but for advancedoptions we will cover a few other programs. Ok first lets get started with identifying snmp admin's main functions.
is the first button on the top left hand side of the application, andit is used to start the agent retrieving snmp data from the specified modemsin your desired hfc ip range. This is the last step in using this program.
is used to export the data you have retrieved. The information will be saved in html format and can later be manually opened and changed to a txtfile.
is a security feature used by isps. It is a string thatidentifies modems in the isps snmp. While most of the strings are public someare also private and the absence of a string denotes disabling of snmp.
