Please Whitelist This Site?

I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)

If you like The TCP/IP Guide, please consider the download version. It's priced very economically and you can read all of it in a convenient format without ads.

If you want to use this site for free, I'd be grateful if you could add the site to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on tcpipguide.com". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||tcpipguide.com^$document". Then just click OK.

Thanks for your understanding!

TCP/IP Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Protocol

The overall network management solution for TCP/IP networks is the Internet Standard Management Framework. In the last two subsections we have taken a look at the framework as a whole, and also discussed the two components that define the management information transmitted between TCP/IP devices to accomplish network management. The third major part of the SNMP Framework is the actual Simple Network Management Protocol, SNMP, which is responsible for moving management information between devices.

In this section, I describe the concepts and operation of the actual SNMP protocol. I begin with a brief overview and history of the protocol, discussing it in general terms. I then have two subsections that describe SNMP's operation in detail. The first covers the different operations performed by the protocol and how they work. The second discusses protocol messaging and message formats.

Background Information: Please be sure that you have a solid understanding of SNMP Management Information Bases (MIBs) and MIB objects before proceeding in this section.
