    The Windows SNMP agent installs as a service and the Services console (Start/Run/services.msc) may be used to verify that the installation has completed successfully as well as start the SNMP service if required.

    Windows does not apply a community string by default to the SNMP service and this is discussed in the following section Enable the SNMP Service.
