The MG-SOFT WinSNMP module implements the industry standard WinSNMP API specification. It provides an SNMP protocol Application Programming Interface to network management applications. The API includes database functions, communication functions, PDU functions, varbindlist functions, entity/context functions and utility functions. MG-SOFT WinSNMP API supports sending and receiving SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and SNMPv3 messages, including the SNMP Trap and Inform notification messages. MG-SOFT WinSNMP API implementation supports both, the standard SNMPv3 User-based Security Model (USM) with several extensions, and the SNMPv3 Transport Security Model (TSM) with support for SNMPv3 over (D)TLS, which provides security on the transport layer.
The WinMIB module provides an API for accessing compiled MIB files from network management applications. By utilizing the WinMIB API, an application can load a MIB file that has been compiled with included MG-SOFT MIB Compiler, retrieve the required information from the MIB module and unload the module when it is not required anymore.
The SNMP EasyAgent framework provides an API for Windows that enables developing SNMP sub-agents (extensions) for Microsoft’s and MG-SOFT’s SNMP master agent in an easy way.
SNMP Software Development Lab comes with interfaces that let you utilize MG-SOFT WinSNMP, WinMIB and SNMP EasyAgent APIs in a wide range of programming languages and development tools, including the .NET development environment.
