1.  Introduction

   This memo defines an extension to the Management Information Base
   (MIB) for use with network management protocols in the Internet
   community.  In particular, it defines objects for the management of
   character stream devices.

2.  The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework

   The SNMPv2 Network Management Framework consists of four major
   components.  They are:

      o    RFC 1442 [1] which defines the SMI, the mechanisms used for
           describing and naming objects for the purpose of management.

      o    STD 17, RFC 1213 [2] defines MIB-II, the core set of managed
           objects for the Internet suite of protocols.

      o    RFC 1445 [3] which defines the administrative and other
           architectural aspects of the framework.

      o    RFC 1448 [4] which defines the protocol used for network
           access to managed objects.

   The Framework permits new objects to be defined for the purpose of
   experimentation and evaluation.

2.1.  Object Definitions

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  Objects in the MIB are
   defined using the subset of Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1)
   defined in the SMI.  In particular, each object object type is named
   by an OBJECT IDENTIFIER, an administratively assigned name.  The
   object type together with an object instance serves to uniquely
   identify a specific instantiation of the object.  For human
   convenience, we often use a textual string, termed the descriptor, to
   refer to the object type.

3.  Overview

   The Character MIB applies to ports that carry a character stream,
   whether physical or virtual, serial or parallel, synchronous or
   asynchronous.  The most common example of a character stream device
   is a hardware terminal port with an RS-232 interface.  Another common
   hardware example is a parallel printer port, say with a Centronics
   interface.  The concept also includes virtual terminal ports, such as
   a software connection point for a remote console.

   The Character MIB is mandatory for all systems that offer character
   stream ports.  This includes, for example, terminal servers,
   general-purpose time-sharing hosts, and even such systems as a bridge
   with a (virtual) console port.  It may or may not include character
   ports that do not support network sessions, depending on the system's
   needs.

   The Character MIB's central abstraction is a port.  Physical ports
   have a one-to-one correspondence with hardware ports. Virtual ports
   are software entities analogous to physical ports, but with no
   hardware connector.

   Each port supports one or more sessions.  A session represents a
   virtual connection that carries characters between the port and some
   partner.  Sessions typically operate over a stack of network
   protocols.  A typical session, for example, uses Telnet over TCP.

   The MIB comprises one base object and two tables, detailed in the
   following sections.  The tables contain objects for ports and
   sessions.

   The MIB intentionally contains no distinction between what is often
   called permanent and operational or volatile data bases.  For the
   purposes of this MIB, handling of such distinctions is implementation
   specific.

3.1.  Relationship to Interface MIB

   The Character MIB does not relate directly to the Interface MIB [1],
   since it is not intrinsically a network interface.  On the other
   hand, in most implementations where it is present, it will be above a
   physical sublayer interface, such as the RS-232-like [2] or
   Parallel-printer-like [3] MIBs.  Such physical interfaces typically
   are represented by a row in the interface table (ifTable), identified
   by a value of ifIndex.

               initialization of the entity's network management
               system to the next re-initialization.

               In a system where the character ports are attached
               to hardware represented by an ifIndex, it is
               conventional, but not required, to make the
