Hello All,

I'm trying to figure out how to issue a snmpwalk command through perl. I have never done anything with snmp and programming before.

Attach is the system command that I use.

Thanks
snmpwalk -v2c -c public localhost

write a perl script for it.
use BER;
use SNMP_util "0.92";

...
Usage: @result = $snmp->walk(-format => 'ne',
                               -oids =>['ifAdminStatus'],
                               -print => 'on');
                           
                  where print = 'on' or 'off'

        or use the shortcut format (Note: print will be disabled by default
                                     
        @result = $snmp->walk('ne','ifAdminStatus');                          

the output will  be:
        $result[0] = ifAdminStatus.1
        $result[1] = 'up'
        $result[2] = ifAdminStatus.2
        $result[3] = 'up'
        ...

Okay now how do I install "BER" and "SNMP_util" because of the fact cpan can't find them.

Thanks,
Thomas

I'm not sure about BER (I'd need to do some searching) but here's SNMP::Util

SNMP::Util is a little old.  You may want to look ant Net::SNMP instead.

Or, you might look over some of the other snmp modules to see if there is one tailored to your needs.
