Ralph, if your seedfile is working for you, stick with it. It may only
be a question of style. Taken by themselves, the only difference I
know of between the [email protected] 0 and the @oid* is the chance
that [email protected] 0 will allow the discovery of things with badly formed
oids, such as you sometimes see on firewalls.

I do have suspicions, based on poorly-recorded notes I took at
an update and observations at a number of customer sites, about the
order of precedence between negative and positive entries of the oid
and address-range types, that lead me to use the [email protected] 0. But you
should not change what is working for you. There is a certain amount
of voodoo involved here.

I think most people do it the way you are doing it. Anyone else?

Hi, forum!

In a recent posting I found the following...

[email protected] 0             # exclude non-snmp things

Until now I've used something like...

Question: Should I switch to the "new" version? Do I miss something?
Any info appreciated.
