I have a few Windows 2008 servers that I'm trying to setup SNMP monitoring.
I have installed and configured the SNMP service. I have also turned on the exceptions from SNMP and SNMP Traps in the Windows Firewall exception list. However, SNMP traffic is still being blocked.
If I turn off the Windows firewall completely then the SNMP requests work fine.
Is there a known problem with the SNMP and SNMP Trap exception check boxes in the Windows Firewall settings? Is there another place that I need to configure to allow this traffic?
I know that the SNMP community strings are configured correctly (I have doubled checked, and everything works when the firewall is turned off).
