Well, your $octets only has 7 bytes in it, so it wouldn't pass the specs of "either 8 or 11 octets". Fiddling with it a bit suggests you dropped a "07" from the start:

# you presented the octets as a string of hex numbers. # I'll do the same, then strip out the spaces, and pack # it into binary format $octets = "07 D8 06 01 01 27 3B 00"; $octets =~ s/ //g; $octets = pack "H*", $octets; # now $octets is in a form as you would get back from snmp, # so we unpack with the template I gave earlier: @date = unpack 'n C6 a C2', $octets; # and print $datetime = sprintf "%04d-%02d-%02d %02d:%02d:%02d", @date; print $datetime;
This prints: "2008-06-01 01:39:59".
