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.  '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 dpzATnoc.edu ip.ipforwarding.0 = 2

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

       system.sysContact.0 = STRING: "dpzATnoc.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  mes-
       sage will be shown, helping to pinpoint in what way the request was malformed.

OPTIONS
       snmpset takes the common options described in the snmpcmd(1) manual page.
