spickles has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am picking up Net::SNMP and have a simple script that worked fine while VPN'd in to work from home. Then I come in this morning (having made zero changes) and now I get the error that the host isn't responding (but I can ping it). I checked my firewall, and it's not blocking the traffic. I've seen posts on the 'net where people had to modify *nix config files, but I'm on Windoze using ActivePerl. The latest version of Net::SNMP that was available is what I'm using (6.0). Any ideas? Code below:

#!c:/perl/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Net::SNMP; my $OID = ''; #my $OID = ''; my ($session, $error) = Net::SNMP->session( -hostname => '', -version => 'snmpv2c', -community => 'private' ); if (!defined $session) { printf "ERROR: %s.\n", $error; exit 1; } my $result = $session->get_request(-varbindlist => [ $OID ],); #my $result = $session->get_bulk_request(-varbindlist => [ $OID ],); if (!defined $result) { printf "ERROR: %s.\n", $session->error(); $session->close(); exit 1; } print "$result->{$OID}\n"; foreach my $key ( sort keys %$result ) { print "$key => $$result{$key}\n"; } $session->close();
