Title : Middlebox Communications (MIDCOM) Protocol Managed
Author(s) : M. Barnes et al.
Filename : draft-barnes-midcom-mib-01.txt
Pages : 16
Date : 2003-7-1
This document describes and defines the managed objects for dynamic
configuration of middleboxes. The scope of the middleboxes to which
these managed objects apply is limited to NATs and Firewalls.
However, the MIB module as defined by this document is intended to
provide a baseline for the dynamic configuration of other types of
middleboxes. The applicability of existing Management Information
Base (MIB) modules to the MIDCOM requirements, framework and
semantics is described. Additional managed objects are defined to
satisfy the entirety of the MIDCOM requirements, framework and
semantics, providing a complete MIDCOM MIB for NATs and Firewalls to
fully realize the requirements of the MIDCOM protocol.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
