SNMPSET(1)                         Net-SNMP                         SNMPSET(1)




NAME

       snmpset - communicates with a network entity using SNMP SET requests


SYNOPSIS

       snmpset [COMMON OPTIONS] OID TYPE VALUE [OID TYPE VALUE]...


DESCRIPTION

       snmpset  is  an  SNMP application that uses the SNMP SET request to set
       information on a network entity.  One or more object identifiers (OIDs)
       must  be given as arguments on the command line.  A type and a value to
       be set must accompany each object identifier.  Each  variable  name  is
       given in the format specified in variables(5).

       The TYPE is a single character, one of:
              i  INTEGER
              u  UNSIGNED
              s  STRING
              x  HEX STRING
              d  DECIMAL STRING
              n  NULLOBJ
              o  OBJID
              t  TIMETICKS
              a  IPADDRESS
              b  BITS
       Most  of  these  will use the obvious corresponding ASN.1 type.  value,
       and the ’u’ unsigned type is also used for handling Gauge32 values.

       If you have the proper MIB file loaded, you can, in most cases, replace
       the type with an ’=’ sign. For an object of type OCTET STRING this will
       assume a string like the ’s’ type notation. For other types it will  do
       "The Right Thing".

       For example:

       snmpset  -c  private  -v  1 test-hub system.sysContact.0 s dpz@noc.rut-
       gers.edu ip.ipforwarding.0 = 2

       will set the variables sysContact.0 and ipForwarding.0:

       system.sysContact.0 = STRING: "dpz@noc.rutgers.edu"
       ip.ipForwarding.0 = INTEGER: not-forwarding(2)

       If the network entity has an error processing the  request  packet,  an
       error  packet  will be returned and a message will be shown, helping to
       pinpoint in what way the request was malformed.
