Hey Till,

I would also like to see a howto on snmp. I have been trying to set this up today but have been unsuccessful. I will keep looking on the net and see if I run across a good one.

I'd like to see a primer on SNMP. Searched Googled already of course but only find long dry descriptions of software and network devices. Would be nice with a howto explaining how snmp works for non-engineers, including the mib thing, how are the codes assigned, are there standard rules or are the mib's assigned in a more or less random fashion by the network device manufacturers, etc.

Edit: Never mind, found a good tutorial here:
