Hi folks,

I have a question concerning the Address Registration MIB:

We use an IBM 8285 ATM Workgroup Switch. When I perform a
get-next to its atmfAtmAddressTable, following result is printed:

atmfAddressStatus.103.20.57.153.153.153.153.153.153.0.0.153.153.1.1.2.0.
161.10.0.128.0 = 1

This is the entry for our ATM Workstation, which is connected to this 
switch. I interprete this entry as following:

- the last 7 bytes define the ESI and the SEL of the ATM Host
   ESI: 2.0.161.10.0.128
   SEL:0

- the 13 bytes before define the Net Prefix
  57.153.153.153.153.153.153.0.0.153.153.1.1

That is right so far. But what mean the first two bytes:  103.20 ??
Since the first index defines the ATM Port, what means the second ?


The atmfAddressEntry (UNI 3.1) uses following index:

     atmfAddressPort               : INTEGER
     atmfAddressAtmAddress :  AtmAddress --> OCTET STRING(SIZE(8|20))   

So the above entry should have a maximum index length of 21. 
(Port and ATM Address) and not 22. 

Can anyone help me ?

Thanks and best regards,
