NAME
       snmpset - communicates with a network entity using SNMP SET requests

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

DESCRIPTION
       snmpset is an SNMP application that uses the SNMP SET request to set information on a net-
       work entity.  One or more object identifiers (OIDs) must be given as arguments on the com-
       mand  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.  's', 'x', 'd'  and  'b'  are
       all  different ways of specifying an OCTET STRING 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.rutgers.edu  ip.ipforward-
       ing.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 mal-
       formed.

OPTIONS
       snmpset	takes  the  common  options  described	in the snmpcmd(1) manual page.	Note that
       snmpset REQUIRES  an argument specifying the agent to  query  and  at  least  one  set  of
       OID/type/value arguments, as described in there.

       snmpcmd(1), variables(5).
