How can I use SNMPGET from inside a cisco 501 to ask it what its outside mac address is ?

In an SNMPWALK command it has the ip address on the LHS so you cant query it unless you know the address already ? Seems a bit backwards!

IF-MIB::ifSpecific.1 = OID: SNMPv2-SMI::zeroDotZero
IF-MIB::ifSpecific.2 = OID: SNMPv2-SMI::zeroDotZero
IP-MIB::ipAdEntAddr.192.168.0.174 = IpAddress: 192.168.0.174
IP-MIB::ipAdEntAddr.192.168.1.1 = IpAddress: 192.168.1.1
IP-MIB::ipAdEntIfIndex.192.168.0.174 = INTEGER: 1
IP-MIB::ipAdEntIfIndex.192.168.1.1 = INTEGER: 2

First, you'll need to enable the SNMP agent on the PIX...see the following link for instructions on the "snmp-server" command:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/secursw/ps2120/products_command_reference_chapter09186a00801cd841.html#wp1191051

You should be able to poll the PIX via SNMP once this has been done.  The following OID should get you info on the MAC address:

The MAC address information is stored in the following SNMP Object Identifier (OID):

dot1dTpFdbTable / 1.3.6.1.2.1.17.4.3

.1.3.6.1.2.1.17.4.3
dot1dTpFdbTable OBJECT-TYPE
        -- FROM BRIDGE-MIB
        DESCRIPTION    "A table that contains information about unicast
                      entries for which the bridge has forwarding and/or
                      filtering information.  This information is used
                      by the transparent bridging function in
                      determining how to propagate a received frame."
::= { iso(1) org(3) dod(6) internet(1) mgmt(2) mib-2(1) dot1dBridge(17) dot1dTp(4) 3 }

See the following URL for where I found this:

You should be able to retrieve MAC address information by specifying the above SNMP OID.
