FC_RTSet

is a GUI-based desktop application that allows you to build simple input forms to change the value of a variable or list of variables in the SNMP agent of a device. This way, you can use SNMP commands to manage and control devices.

The application utilizes the SNMP “set-request” command. This means that you need SNMP write access rights on the remote device!

CCBuilder runs on all Windows versions from 2008 onwards (32/64 bit, desktop & server). Supports SNMP version 1,2 and 3.

The screenshot above shows FC_RTSet configured to set a device’s identification strings. The device properties are “hard coded” into the configuration file. There’s no limit on the number of form input fields. Each input field can have a preset value. All form input fields have a fixed instance “.0”.

  • Forms

    Allows to build simple input forms to change remote device settings.

  • Parallelism

    Can be used to set only one, as well as multiple devices at the same time.

  • Integration

    Can be launched directly from CCBuilder or from a shortcut on the desktop.

This screenshot shows a form that allows to bring a port of a device “Up” or “Down”. The input form will prompt for the port# (instance – “Runtime”) directly after FC_RTSet is launched. The device’s properties are, again, “hard coded” into the configuration file.

Configuring a bunch of devices in a single action.

Instead of entering remote device host and SNMP properties directly in the FC_RTSet application, it’s also possible to use a CSV file. The CVS file should have the following columns:

IP address/Host name, Community, SNMP Version, SNMP Port, Auth. Passwd, Enc. Passwd, Auth. Prot, Enc. Alg,

An example of such a host properties file could look like..

192.168.4.14,private,2,161,,,,,
192.168.4.243,private,1,161,,,,,
Silver,private,3,161,authsecret,encsecret,MD5,3DES,

…and after FC_RTSet has read the hosts file it shows…
