XML-based network management has been proposed as an alternative to SNMP-based network management. But the XML-based network management cannot manage networks equipped with the traditional agents such as SNMP, TELNET etc. So the universal gateway is absolutely necessary in order to realize compatibility management towards XML, SNMP and non-SNMP. In this paper, we present the model and the implementation of the gateway. We propose the detail model of universal gateway, which is a middleware to make XML-based manager communicate with varied agents fluently. Also, to check the feasibility of this model, the detail implementation of the universal gateway is provided.
