This document references the snmp: URI scheme, and it needs a reference to the appropriate document (draft-black-snmp-uri-04.txt). It could probably be informative, since the snmp: uri is only in the examples, but since it is not yet a registered scheme, some reference seems to be required. They have updated the section on NAT handling and NAPTs, and since they have added text that this probably won't work through a NAT/NAPT, I've shifted from DISCUSS to ABSTAIN. But I note that this document still has some broken assumptions. They've added this text: Configure the NAPT device to provide default mapping(s) for the well-known port(s) and use the default IANA-assigned FCIP TCP port number in service URLs, when possible. Apparently in response to my original question: >I don't think I understand how the first one helps (is there some default >mapping through NAPTs presumed for well known ports?) pointing to this text in the original: - Use the default IANA-assigned FCIP TCP port number in service URLs, when possible. The problem remains that unless the party outside the NAPT knows what the mapping will be and to use it instead of the port assigned, it won't work. I was asking if they thought there was some default mapping between the well known port and the port that a NAPT would select--trying to get them to see that there isn't such a thing and that this was broken. They've chosen to say "use a default mapping", but any such mapping would be local convention and knowable only by some out of band mechanism. You would have to say "turn off port translation for this port".
