Another clue - in the snmpd.conf file, the passwords are not replaced
with a key by the agent, as it says should happen in the documentation.

What can prevent this? And would it leave authentication working but
break privacy?

Thanks again

Gareth

OK. It was worth a try.

Yes - that's right.

Hmmm...
OK - one last suggestion, and then I'll leave you to the Windows
experts.

Try running the (authPriv) command with the '-d' flag.
This will dump the raw contents of any SNMP requests that are
sent/received.

The command will still fail, but what does it display?
