MG-SOFT SNMP Proxy Agent

About the software


MG-SOFT SNMP Proxy Agent is an application that can receive, optionally translate, and forward SNMP protocol messages to final targets. It will also receive, translate, and send responses to these messages back to the message originators.

In addition to SNMP Get, GetNext, GetBulk and Set messages, it can also forward and translate SNMP Trap and SNMP Inform notification messages. The software supports SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and SNMPv3 protocol versions and can translate SNMP messages between different versions of the protocol. This makes it fully transparent to the network management (NMS) applications and managed SNMP devices, which are not aware that the actual management is conducted through a SNMP proxy application.

A typical SNMP proxy agent application is located between one or more network management (NMS) applications and the managed SNMP devices (agents), for example, when NMS and agents do not support the same version of the SNMP protocol or when they are not in the same (sub)network.

The SNMP Proxy Agent management console provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for configuring the Proxy Agent Service.
