1. Introduction

� � This memo defines a transport mapping for using the Simple Network

� � Management Protocol (SNMP) [1] over TCP [2].� The transport mapping

� � can be used with any version of SNMP.� This document extends the

� � transport mappings defined in STD 62, RFC 3417 [3].

� � The SNMP over TCP transport mapping is an optional transport mapping.

� � SNMP protocol engines that implement the SNMP over TCP transport

� � mapping MUST also implement the SNMP over UDP transport mapping as

� � defined in STD 62, RFC 3417 [3].

� � The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",

� � "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this

� � document are to be interpreted as described in BCP 14, RFC 2119 [4].
