Installing/Configuring SNMP for Macs?
I'm currently doing some testing that requires me to send SNMP traps to a central console, and as such I have got W7, Windows XP and various switches and network devices all singing away nicely. All but the office Mac (Snow Leopard).
I've been doing some digging, but end up going around in circles as to how I can get SNMP working on it and whilst the Apple support site says I can use OT/SNMP (available from the download centre) when I get there I can't find it.
Is there anyone using SNMP on Macs who can help here?

I saw that earlier. That is for OSX Server only I'm afraid

ahh bugger...I've used it for Snow Leopard Server and thought it would be transferable. My mistake!

I'm the writer of that article
While I don't have Snow Leopard anymore in my laptop, I may have some machines with it at home.
Which of the parts of the article doesn't work for you?
Have a nice day!

Hi Andor, thanks for joining to reply to this thread as I'm sure it will be useful to many in the long run.
I was looking to install/configure SNMP on the Mac client only (iMac) and have it send the traps to a Windows/Linux computer running SNMP monitoring software, and so far cannot find out how to install/activate SNMP on a Mac. Please note we do NOT have any Mac servers.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have some memories (I cannot exactly recall now) on how to activate the SNMP service in systems which do not have the "Services" control panel. I'm not at home now so I may check it tonight.
Do you have, anyway, the snmpconf that generates the snmp config file?

No. Ideally we'd need a step by step guide on how to do this for the benefit of everyone else including me

Ok, I have a Mac Mini at home with a clean Snow Leopard install. I'll try to do it tonight or tomorrow...

I've used this free tool in the past which seems to do the job....
