Recently I have implemented snmp v1 agent for my server. But I have met one
small problem... Because of UDP port 161 is usually taken by snmpd I choosed
some fixed port above 1024. But sometimes I have to run few different
instances of my server on one machine , besides, admins open access to new
port on firewall veeery unwillingly. So I've decided to make snmp subgent
for snmpd server. I did a quick search on google and found that I have to
use some advanced SNMP library instead of my own.
So , now the question : Should I really switch to another lib to make it
work with snmpd ? This would be very uncomfortable for me and my collegues
who also use our simple snmp lib.
Thank you for attention.
