                The IPv6-Specific MIB Modules Are Obsolete

Abstract

   In 2005-2006, the IPv6 MIB update group published updated versions of    the IP-MIB, UDP-MIB, TCP-MIB, and IP-FORWARD-MIB modules, which use    the InetAddressType/InetAddress construct to handle IPv4 and IPv6 in    the same table.  This document contains versions of the obsoleted    IPV6-MIB, IPV6-TC, IPV6-ICMP-MIB, IPV6-TCP-MIB, and IPV6-UDP-MIB    modules for the purpose of updating MIB module repositories.  This    document obsoletes RFCs 2452, 2454, 2465, and 2466 (i.e., the RFCs    containing these MIBs) and reclassifies them as Historic.
