We'd like to use SNMP to gather IP address information, and change an IP address remotely.   What is the OID?  Any other information would be helpful.

OID and MIBs are the heart of SNMP - however in my humble opinion they are not really necessary for the average person to understand in order to work with SNMP in your network.  Here is a great article from Paessler on what an OID is.  http://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/653-how-do-snmp-mibs-and-oids-work

Gathering IP address and other information from a SNMP client is easy enough   (Walking the MIB) but changing it is another thing.  What type of device are you trying to change the ip address on?

Here is a link to a MIB browser http://www.oidview.com/mibbrowser.html I'm not sure if RFC1213 (The SNMP RFC) gives information or standards on changing an ip address exactly.  That I think is controlled by the vendor of the equipment hence my question, what equipment are you trying to change the ip on?

This is a simple IP based external hard drive.  I did "smnpwalk" on the device and got a long list of OID and values back.  All of the OID that correspond to the vendor private mib files are very easy to recognize.  The OID of the device IP address is part of the standard set of mib files.  Do you know what this OID look like so that I can do "snmpset" on it?
