Hi folks,

FYI - work in progress on a standard 'snmp:' URI scheme.

Caution - the syntax is getting some pushback on the
IETF and W3C URI discussion lists, so it's likely to
change a little yet (for the engine/context part).

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts

	Title		: URI Scheme for SNMP
	Author(s)	: D. Black, K. McCloghrie
	Filename	: draft-black-snmp-uri-02.txt
	Pages		: 11

SNMP and the Internet-Standard Management Framework are widely 
      used for management of communication devices, creating needs to 
      specify SNMP access (including access to SNMP MIB object 
      instances) from non-SNMP management environments.  For example, 
      when out-of-band IP management is used via a separate management 
      interface (e.g., for a device that does not support in-band IP 
      access), there is a need for a uniform way to indicate how to 
      contact the device for management. URLs fit this need well, as 
      they allow a single text string to indicate a management access 
      communication endpoint for a wide variety of IP-based protocols.  
      This document defines a simple URI scheme so that SNMP can be 
      designated as the protocol used for management.  This scheme also 
      allows URI specification of individual MIB object instances.
