Issue with SNMP scan on remote network


I have some troubles configuring SNMP scan for remote network as explained in the documentation: https://wiki.ocsinventory-ng.org/index.php?title=Documentation:SNMP#Configuring_custom_parameters

After following the documentation and running a scan, if I check the logs, the SNMP remote network parameter seems to be OK:


but nothing else in the logs telling me that the SNMP scan is actually done for this specific network (

Same issue here. I have a remote network with printers. Snmpwalk works without any issue, subnet is listed in log file as above but debug log shows only devices from local network, no remote network is scanned.

This happens only on Windows. I have an agent on CentOS which is able to scan remote netoworks.
