At which point in this converstation was I rude to you? Sorry If I appeared
rude - I was simply asking a question and trying to clarify it.
Is it rude to disagree with someone?
To re-clarify: my original question was: "Does anyone know of an open-source
(ideally: Linux) software that performs functions similar to "Mimic" ".
Mimic from Gambit is a very nice tool that you run in a real network to take
an SNMP "snapshot" of the devices into a database, and then replay it in a
different network to allow diagnostics and testing to be run against the
original devices without access to the real ones being available. There is
(I think) a Linux version, but it's too expensive for the project I need it
I know how to set up multiple responders on multiple addresses and write
software to respond to SNMP requestion from a database - but I was told that
the software for this already exists. If it doesnt then I will write it
myself but I was hoping to save myself the time and effort.
