OK, let's say you have a MIB.

What good is that without a device and all the other trappings. Back to the beginning. It's as if you decided you want to use SNMP to do something but maybe we can find another way that you can use.

That's my question, where can i run the mib code?
what setup should i have or create to work with it?

You run the MIB code on

Well, there are some million devices that do SNMP reporting and accept a MIB. Creating a MIB is akin to creating a custom sized lug nut and then trying to find a car to put it on.

Totally backwards.

Let's go to the beginning here. What lead to think you want to use SMNP?

The readme in the downloaded zip should be clear for the developer. It's
"A Python script that parses an SNMP MIB text file and generates a skeleton C source code
file that can be used with the LWIP-SNMP to implement a private mib.

So it seems you need Python and C and the LWIP-SNMP. If this as abracadabra for you, you might not have the right experience to do what you want.

In reply to: Re: mibs

That's why I'm asking !!
If you have these files, where and how you run them? what kind of device or setup you might use?
I'm just learning, if you can help please go ahead.
Thanks.

Let's recap. You don't run a MIB file.

In reply to: where can I use or enter a MIB generator software code??

http://sourceforge.net/projects/snmpb/

"SnmpB can browse/edit/load/add MIB files and can query SNMP agents. It also supports agent discovery, trap events, and graph plotting."

So there it is, no where do you "run" a MIB file.

-> All these posts and you never reveal what lead you to look at MIB files. I wonder if you find a GAME SAVE FILE with the .MIB extension and was looking to play the game?
