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 main components of the MG-SOFT SNMP Proxy Agent software package are the Proxy Agent Service and the management console. Proxy Agent Service is a Windows service that runs in the background and receives, translates and forwards SNMP messages. The SNMP Proxy Agent management console provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for configuring the Proxy Agent Service.

MG-SOFT SNMP Proxy Agent runs on MS Windows operating systems (Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.x, Windows 10, Windows Server 2016).

A customer testimonial
"I am fairly new to SNMP, and I purchased your MIB Browser at the recommendation of other engineers in my company that implement SNMP in our products. I have found the MIB Browser VERY intuitive and easy to use, and it has greatly aided my understanding of SNMP as a whole. I have mainly used it as a self-training tool to learn about SNMP in general, but also how our own products use SNMP.

You guys are geniuses! I deleted the registry key for the MIB Compiler, and tried it again. This time it worked great. It now stores my settings when I shut the program down. Don't know why it didn't work before, unless there was something "left over" in the registry from when I ran the evaluation copy of the MIB Compiler (before I purchased the product).

Thanks again for your help. I have to say that I am highly impressed with the level and quality of support I am receiving from MG-SOFT. It is unfortunate that you don't see much of those qualities any more... but you guys are the exception!"
