I am trying to get SNMP working, but having some difficulty.

I have enabled SNMP on the test machines, and everything looks fine.
Running Lansweeper device tester confirms SNMP is all active, and 3rd party SNMP testers also confirm everything is working.

However, I can't get Lansweeper to pick up the SNMP information??
Can anyone please point me on my way!

The reason I wanted it to scan PCs/servers was so they also show up under the devices overview section, which only seems possible by getting the OID from SNMP.

This is not possible. A machine is classified as either a computer or a device, it cannot be both. Lansweeper version 5 will do away with this distinction and merge computers and devices into a single "asset" category. (We do not yet have a release date for Lansweeper version 5.)

Answered through email as well.

We assumed the issue was related to device scanning.
SNMP is only used for devices (printers, routers…), not for computers.

Do you feel any information is missing from the computer scan?

The SNMP settings within Lansweeper are correctly set already.

Please ensure that, in your configuration console, you have entered the correct SNMP community string for the IP range under Scanning Servers\Your Server\IP Range Scanning. Hit the "Credentials" button for the desired range and edit the community strings. You can specify up to three strings per range.
If you immediately wish to rescan your ranges, hit the "Scan all enabled ranges now" button.
