Exclamation Solarwinds Bandwidth Monitor Setup Help
I came across some free bandwidth monitoring software by Solarwinds while doing some reading on other sites. I installed the software and now im stuck at setup. The Softaware is asking for...
Ip Address/Hostname
SNMP Version
Community string

I'm assuming the IP Address/Hostname would be my computers IPv4 on the network and as far as the SNMP Version goes im not sure, I can either choose from SNMP v1/2c or v3. For the community string, I'm assuming its Public but im not completely sure.
When I attempt to go to the next step is says the credentials test failed So obviously something I entered is incorrect. Could someone please give me hand with setting this up?

Note: this is on my own home network. Im using a Comcast all in one router and modem.

Unless you load some sort of SNMP service on your PC (never heard of this done) or server, you're not going to get this to work. SNMP is a protocol used in business environments to monitor and manage servers and network devices.
