How to identify router model using SNMP

Hi Folks

I did the following snmpwalk on a cisco 501 and got the data back listed. There's nothing in there that tells me whether its a model 501 or a 506 etc etc., are there further mibs or some other way of identifying what the router model is ?

"sysObjectID" ( SNMPv2-MIB::sysObjectID.0 ) tells you the type of Cisco device you have.

In your case "enterprises.9.1.417"

Lists like this:

... can help you identify your device.

In your case this is a Cisco Pix 501

Hope this helps,
