Install Net-SNMP

If you plan to use any hosts with SNMP v3 support, you must install the Net-SNMP binaries, since the PHP SNMP extension does not handle SNMPv3. You do NOT need to install/use the Net-SNMP SNMP agent. The Microsoft SNMP agent is recommended. The Net-SNMP binaries are useful when creating custom scripts, as they provide an easy way to query SNMP data from devices.

  1. Run the installer:
    1. Select the Net-SNMP agent service With Windows Extension DLL Support
    2. Uncheck Net-SNMP Trap Service
    3. Uncheck Perl SNMP Modules
    4. Select Encryption support
    5. Specify Destination Folder: C:\Net-SNMP\


  1. From a command prompt run:

If there are no errors, it's properly installed.
