SNMPSET(1)			   Net-SNMP			    SNMPSET(1)

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	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  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.

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.

SEE ALSO
       snmpcmd(1), variables(5).
