"Connection Failed" Adding SNMP Sensor on PRTG Traffic Grapher

I need to monitor the bandwidth going in and out on several servers in a domain. I have installed PRTG Traffic Grapher on serverA and have been attempting to set up an SNMP sensor that connects to serverB on the domain. I have installed the SNMP service on both serverA and serverB, but all I get is "connection failed" errors.

I have done research and tried several things and can find no reason why this shouldn't work. Windows firewall is disabled on both servers and I have already wasted too much time trying to work this out.

P.S both servers are windows 2003 server

Hi,

Are these machines able to ping each other? Also is SNMP enabled on both of the servers?

Yeah, they can see each other fine, absolutely no issues. And I installed the SNMP service on both computers.

are you using the correct community string? You need to go into the service and set this up. PRTG only needs RO access

The problem was that PRTG Traffic Grapher doesn't actually seem to support SNMP devices that are Servers/PC's. So this option was not feasible anyways.

Thanks guys, I'll close this up.
