Whee! This is fun!

Please reference the original question by someone named Geetha. Sure, madtoperl could be "Geetha", but why would madtoperl change the name of the script, and the IP address (but only slightly) when posting in a different forum?

Net::SNMP session creating problem Posted by geetha... on 9/7/2004 11:34:00 AM Hi , I'm using NET::SNMP perl package to send do SNMP operations. This requires establishing snmp session. upon calling create session , I'm getting error "ERROR: Unknown error +creating socket." The code which gives the above error is given below. *************************************************************** # /usr//bin/perl # to test snmp functions use strict; use vars qw($session $error $response); use Net::SNMP; ($session, $error) = Net::SNMP->session( -hostname => shift || 'localhost', -community => shift || 'public', -port => shift || 161 ); if (!defined($session)) { printf("ERROR: %s.\n", $error); exit 1; } *************************************END ***************************** +************* I execute the program as : perl public output of the program: ERROR: Unknown error creating socket. ********************************************************************** +************** As part of debugging this, I read that NET::SNMP package requires Soc +ket6 & IO::Socket::INET6 packages . I installed them, but problem is +still persisting As regarding system configuration , it is a linux OS ,localhost is ena +bled through httpd server. On the command prompt "snmpwalk -v2c -c public localhost system" gives + the output of snmpwalk Can someone help with this session creating problem. I 'm debugging t +his problem from past 3 days, but ... Thanks, Geetha
