RFC 3430            SNMP over TCP Transport Mapping        December 2002

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].
