I am working on ARM9 based LPC3250 controller with linux kernel version 2.6.34 in ubuntu 11.10 based host.

I have downloaded NET-SNMP-5.4.3 version package from NET-snmp web site and created SNMPD binary file with below configuration and tried to port that binary file into NMS board using NFS(NETWORK FILE SHARING).

The procedure to make binary file and porting that file into board is (that i was used)

<li>Go to the contained file of NET-SNMP like below</li>


<li>Run ./configure command with below arguments</li>

root@biya:/home/biya/net-snmp-5.4.3# ./configure --enable-mini-agent --with-cc=arm-linux-gcc --with-mib-modules=mibII --target=arm-linux- --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu --host=arm-linux- --disable-scripts --disable-embedded-perl --enable-static=yes --with-endianness=little --without-perl-modules --disable-manuals --with-rpm build_alias=i686-pc-linux-gnu host_alias=arm-linux target_alias=arm-linux --with-default-snmp-version="1" --with-sys-contact="root" --with-sys-location="unknown" --with-logfile="/var/log/snmpd.log" --with-persistent-directory="/var/net-snmp"

<li>Perform Make operation</li>

root@biya:/home/biya/net-snmp-5.4.4# make
root@biya:/home/biya/net-snmp-5.4.4# make install

Then BINARY file created with name "snmpd", and ported that file into board using(NFS) below procedure after kernel booting

~ # mkdir nfs
~ # mount -t nfs -o nolock /nfs
/nfs # ./snmpd
then it is giving below output
Entered into program

Then i have tried to use SNMPWALK from host to/from target then No response from both sides

The procedure i followed is
/nfs/net-snmp-5.7.2_bin_1/apps # ./snmpwalk -v1 -c public
/usr/local/share/snmp/mibs: No such file or directory
Timeout: No Response from
/nfs/net-snmp-5.7.2_bin_1/apps # ./snmpwalk -v1 -c public
/usr/local/share/snmp/mibs: No such file or directory
Timeout: No Response from

I was thought that it is missing MIBS so,
I have found MIBS in host path /usr/local/share/snmp/mibs After MAKE INSTALL command while generating SNMPD binary
I have created same path /usr/local/share/snmp/mibs on NMS BOARD and i copied that MIBS into created path.

Then i tried with SNMPWALK COMMAND then it is not giving any response.

The procedure that i have followed and output is shown below,

<h1 id="mkdir-nfs">mkdir nfs</h1>
<h1 id="mount-t-nfs-o-nolock-192168141homemohannfs-nfs">mount -t nfs -o nolock /nfs</h1>

~ # cd usr/

/usr/local/share # cd snmp/
/usr/local/share/snmp # mkdir mibs
usr/local/share/snmp #cd mibs/
/usr/local/share/snmp/mibs # pwd

I mounted MIBS using NFS and copied into /usr/local/share/snmp/mibs

/nfs/usr/local/share/snmp/mibs # cp -r NET-SNMP-<em> /usr/local/share/snmp/mibs

~ #nfs/net-snmp-5.7.2_bin_1/apps # ./snmpwalk -v1 -c public
Failed to parse MIB file /usr/local/share/snmp/mibs

Why it is giving Failed to parse MIB file error.
Please help me .

Thanks &amp; Regards,
