About the SNMP Agent or Manager

SNMP agent software must be installed and enabled on any devices for which you want to receive SNMP information. Windows NT 4.0, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Vista all provide an SNMP agent in their default installations. Network systems manufacturers provide an SNMP agent for their routers, hubs, and other network boxes.
