Greetings all,

I'm trying to throw together a quick SNMP simulator for our sales guys to use when demoing our real product. I've found a few out there but prices seem to start at $1000, and since I've already got the Dart controls I don't think I can talk the powers that be into spending more money. My problem is that to date I've not even looked at the agent control, and of course this is a "Can you have it by the end of the month" request.

Does anyone know if it's possible to use the agent control with multiple IP addresses bound to a single network card? 

If not, can I use multiple controls - one for each IP address? And if so, what is the practical number of agent controls I can put in a VB6 (yes I know, upgrade to the 21st century) project?

I'll happily take any advice/examples that anyone out there has to offer. Thanks a ton...

I'm pretty sure that if you don't specify a local address when you call Open, then the agent will take requests on all addresses and send traps from all addresses.

If that's not what you want, then you could use several controls, each opened bound to it's own address.

When you are looking to simulate a network using an SNMP Simulator, the first step is to check the system requirements. SNMP Agent Simulator requires a 32 and 64 bit Windows or Linux distributions like Fedora, SuSE, RedHat and Debian etc. using i386 and x64 architectures.

More CPUS, memory and disk space you have better the performance you will get. Then follow the simple installation steps and you are ready to get started. Typically the simulator include many ready simulated devices so you can already put it to use

Once you have a simulator up and running, you can use it for evaluation, testing, training and support of a network management applications.
