Paessler SNMP Tester

Simple Debugging Tool for Monitoring Configurations that use SNMP

With SNMP Tester you can run simple SNMP requests against a device in your network. This test program is based on the SNMP technologies built into PRTG Network Monitor.

The idea of this program is to have a tool that enables the user to debug SNMP activities in order to find communication and/or data problems in SNMP monitoring configurations. If the SNMP connection works with this test program, it will also work with PRTG.
