5. What do I need to start developing applications
using this package?
You need the .NET Framework version 1.1 and Visual J# version
1.1 redistributables to develop applications using this WebNMS
SNMP package. In addition, you need to download and setup
the WebNMS SNMP package classes.
6. How do I run the various example applications
The product distribution includes various example applications
in the example directory. Examples include applications, such
as snmpget, and snmpgetnext. You can use them to query information
from the SNMP agents on your network. All the applications
that are used to query an agent have identical syntax. In
general, all the command line tools gives help information
when you type the following.
For example, to get help information on the command snmpgetnext,
To execute the application, you have to set the PATH to .NET
Framework redistributables and the necessary dll's needs to
be copied to the example directory. For compiling the example
applications, you can use the utility compile.bat located
under the examples\ snmpapps and examples\mibapps directory.
7. I am able to execute the example applications
but I am not getting any results. What should I do?
If you get a timeout error after executing the application,
the remote host given by you might not have an SNMP agent
running on it. The agent should be running on the system on
which you are querying. Therefore, install an SNMP agent in
the machine or try on some other host which has the SNMP agent.
Your network administrator might know more about this. In
general, routers, ethernet switches, and network printers
have the SNMP agent. You can try querying these devices.
