I am trying to setup snmp SNMP monitoring for a Clearswift email security appliance. I would like it to send the snmp info to my Intellipool monitor server. The basics of snmp are working ok. I have used a packet sniffer to confirm that packets are sent from the appliance to the monitoing server.
However, I can't seem to read the info from
From posting on the intellipool forum, a user said it may be that the packets from the appliance are 64 bit, whereas the software cant read 64 bit.
Any ideas on a program that can read 64bit SNMP packets? Or is there some kind of bash script I could use to query it? (applicance is linux based)

    Possible solution:

       Ensure that your Intellipool monitor server is configured to utilize SNMP v2 or SNMP v3. The reason being that SNMP v1 does not support 64 bit.

    The problem ended up being that I was using the window snmp trap service. There is a trp serice part of intellipool though. So you disable the windows service, and enable the intellipool one
