       snmpset [ common arguments ] objectID type value [objectID
       type value]...


       Snmpset  is  an SNMP application that uses the SET Request
       to set information on a network entity.  One or more fully
       qualified object identifiers must be given as arguments on
       the command line.  A type and a value to set  must  accom­
       pany  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  type  it  will  do "The Right

       For example

       snmpset    test-hub    private    system.sysContact.0    s
       dpz@noc.rutgers.edu ip.ipforwarding.0 = 2

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

       system.sysContact.0 = "dpz@noc.rutgers.edu"
       ip.ipForwarding.0 = 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.  If  there  were  other  variables  in  the
       request,  the request will be resent without the bad vari­


       snmpcmd(1), variables(5).
