A new SNMP library supporting v2c/v3 + Traps

Hi!

Here is libSNMP, a SNMP library made for Arduino. I have developed this for a client and now I am publishing my work with his consent.

Features:

  • It supports only SNMP GET and GETNEXT. Although SNMP SET is also partially implemented, it is not actually supported -because it was getting too complicated.
  • It supports single community string for v2c.
  • It supports multiple users and custom access rights for v3.
  • Traps are supported both for v2c and v3. However, some features might be missing.
  • Switching between v2c and v3 is possible during runtime.

You can download it here: GitHub - semihiseri/libSNMP: SNMP v2c/v3 Agent Library for Arduino
Documentation: Home · semihiseri/libSNMP Wiki · GitHub

I am not sure about the quality of documentation. So, feel free to post here for your questions!

Which board is this intended to compile for? You use these u_char and u_int types in auth.cpp and auth.h that make it not compile for me. Why don't you use standard types?

I tested it only on Arduino Due.

And I use uint32_t etc. because it is not platform dependent. I mean, I can be sure that it is always 32 bits. Which board do you intend to use?

OK, that does work for me.

But see, that's the problem. You used these non-standard types u_char and u_int, which ARE platform dependent. From libSNMP/auth.h at master · semihiseri/libSNMP · GitHub

void password_to_key_sha(
      u_char *password,    /* IN */
      u_int   passwordlen, /* IN */
      u_char *engineID,    /* IN  - pointer to snmpEngineID  */
      u_int   engineLength,/* IN  - length of snmpEngineID */
      u_char *key);         /* OUT - pointer to caller 20-octet buffer */

void password_to_key_md5(
      u_char *password,    /* IN */
      u_int   passwordlen, /* IN */
      u_char *engineID,    /* IN  - pointer to snmpEngineID  */
      u_int   engineLength,/* IN  - length of snmpEngineID */
u_char *key); /* OUT - pointer to caller 16-octet buffer */

I don't have a need for the library. I was going to submit a pull request but wanted to compile it after making my changes. I usually default to compiling for Uno or Mega 2560 since those are the most common Arduino boards. Of course I can compile for any board but there is no documentation that says this library only works for certain boards so I had not way to know I needed to compile for Due. Now I can proceed with the pull request.

My recommendation is that if the library will only work for certain boards to document that. Otherwise change the non-standard types to standard types so that it will compile for any board.
