The Wireshark book talks about MIB files in the installation Directory: Wiresharksnmpmibs However, I do not see this directory in my Windows Wireshark 4.1 installation. If I want to add more MIBs should I create this directory? Where are the MIB's that are supposed to be in the installation.

I did a complete uninstall, I have been upgrading for some time, and had delete the director manually. ON the re-install the directory and the files were there.

Great!!! Just noticed this forum removes the backslashes by default - so should be snmp[backslash]mibs.

The directory is snmpmibs. Select Help > About Wireshark > Folders to find your global configuration directory. This is the directory your snmpmibs directory should be under.

"There are over 300 MIBs in Wireshark’s snmpmibs folder as of Wireshark v1.4. Additional SNMP MIBs can be found at www.mibdepot.com or www.oidview.com/mibs/detail.html."

For details on formatting, naming and adding MIBs, refer to wiki.wireshark.org/SNMP.

Laura - thanks for your quick response. Maybe I'll try a reinstall. My Global Configuration location is C;ProgramFilesWireshark and there is no snmp or snmpmibs directory.
