RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for snmpset (redhat section 1)

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 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
       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.
