Abstract

This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)

for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets.

In particular, it defines objects for managing AppleTalk networks.

RFC 1243 defines a set of MIB objects for managing the lower layers

of the AppleTalk protocol stack, up to the Network layer. This memo

defines additional objects that exist in the AppleTalk portion of the

MIB. These objects provide for the management of the transport and

session layers of the AppleTalk protocol stack, as well as extensions

to the lower layers. This is achieved in an upwardly-compatable

fashion.
