Check the security tab on the server's SNMP service properties.
Check if there is an ACL applied which limits SNMP polling to certain hosts.
If there is, then add the IP or name of your EE server to the ACL so that it is allowed
to poll the server.
IT WORKS! What you suggested was partly the problem. It was also that I had not set up any accepted community strings in the properties of the service. I didn't know you had to since Windows 2000 accepts snmp packets by default when you install the service. I guess I can't blame MS for wanting to be a bit more secure.
Thanks for your help.
That's good to hear Z. Using "public" for a community string is a very bad idea in the first place.
Anyone can gain a lot of info from a device from SNMP, including users on your own network. The tools
to do this are easy to get and install. I'm not amazed Micro$oft didn't do this sooner, as they seem
to leave their software wide open by default.
