Hello,


Did someone have a problem with status monitoring of Windows Server from XMC via SNMP?

Problem occur with windows firewall on. Although I have enabled inbound and outbound rules for SNMP Service and SNMP Trap with firewall turned on there is no connection over SNMP.

When I turn firewall off there is connection.

Which rule I should enable to have connection over SNMP?


(last screen shows fine connection over SNMP but with firewall turned off)

Hi Grzegorz, 

UDP ports 161, 162 has to be allowed, is that what those options "SNMP service" does?

Hi Grzegorz, I guess maybe accessible IP scope isn't set. Did you set accessible IP scope for SNMP service?

Thank you :) it helped. I didn’t see  that SNMP rule accept (by default) connections only from "local network"
