Configure MS Windows 7 SNMP to work with SpeedFan

Hello m8s,

As you know in system administration field , the monitoring is essentials part daily stuff.

In Linux based OS , if you need to extract some numerical values from main-board sensors you will accomplished with no-more than….5 click..i mean commands.
And everything will just work as you expect…but there is also other side – some call it Windows ūüėÄ

As you know, running stuff on Windows sometimes becomes so fantastic journey (with point of no return ^_^), that you just may not able to remember where you start…and how the hell you made the deam thing to work ūüôā

In next..not so few steps i will show you how drawing thought SNMP numerical values from your main-board sensors.

I will use windows SNMP services + Speed Fan + all of my knowledge do guide you.

Installing and config snmp sensors with Windows 7

– Navigate to “Control Panel” -> “Programs and Features

– In left part select “Turn Windows features on or off

– Search in “Windows Features” for “Simple Network Managment Protocol (SNMP)” -> and put check . Now wait until install complete

– Navigate to services control pannel: Start Menu -> Run -> services.msc than search for “SNMP Services and righ click – Properties.

– Select “Agents” tab and type the correct values in Name and Location. For example: “Pavlin.Chervenkov” “Floor2” and then hit apply

– Select “Traps” tabs and type in “Community name” type “desktop” then hit apply.

– Select “Security” tab and add to “Accepted community names” the name from previous step – “desktop” and “Community rights” (READ ONLY)

– Add desire host to “Accept SNMP packets from these hosts” or use “Accept SNMP packets from any host

Then Apply and OK

– It is a MUST to stopl services and put it on Manual mode ! We shall start it later
