What does "installed SNMP.exe" mean ?

There is no such thing as "Windows 7 server"; you're referring to either Windows 7 (a desktop OS) or Windows Server 2008.

Both have a Windows service that offers SNMP functionality; install it from the Windows features screen.

You may have to adjust the community name, and trap and peer IP settings, to get it working.

I am using snmpwalk tool to check the snmp output, but in the output screen it displays "Request timed out" – VinodKumar Jul 16 '12 at 6:05
