Feature Release

PowerSNMP for .NET is a family of .NET classes and components used to manage network devices and remote management information. Full support for SNMPv1, SNMPv2, SNMPv3 and ASN.1 standards provide interoperability with enterprise devices. The Manager and Agent components provide for message transport and a suite of supporting classes provide MIB information, encoding/decoding, and encryption/decryption. MIB files can be parsed and imported into C# and Visual Basic projects to provide full intellisense support. A MIB compiler dynamically loads MIB files at run-time to generate new classes and objects on demand.

Updates in V4.3.0.3

  • The Agent and Manager components have been updated to utilize IO completion threads when listening for traps, notifications, informs and requests
  • Support for IPv6 has been enhanced. A new CreateEndPoint function has been added to the Agent and Manager components. This method provides an easy way to create an IPv4 or IPv6 endpoint from a string host name (or address) and port. Method calls have been streamlined with IPEndPoint parameters
  • "Agent discovery" using Manager.GetResponses now works for SNMPv3. The returned ResponseMessage array will contain ResponseMessages for agents that support the specified user, and ReportMessages for agents that do not
  • Manager.GetResponses will now "broadcast" in IPv6 using the known "FF02::1" multicast group address
  • Agents now include the option of NOT responding to broadcasted requests. Also, agents will now join the known "FF02::1" multicast group if the broadcast option is true and the agent opens on an IPv6 socket
  • Variable.ValueName is now writable. Set this property to an enumerated value and the Variable.Value property will update to the correct integer value
  • A Manager.Log event has been added that is raised whenever an SNMP message is sent or received

There have also been multiple issue fixes, including an event handler fix in the Manager component designer, and strengthened support for v3 authoritative engines.
