       snmptest -v 1 hostname community

       snmptest [-v 2] hostname noAuth


       Snmptest is a flexible SNMP application that  can  monitor
       and manage information on a network entity.

       The hostname specification may be either a host name or an
       internet address specified in "dot notation".

       The version 1 and version 2c community specifies the  com­
       munity name for the transaction with the remote system.

       After  invoking  the  program,  a command line interpreter
       proceeds to accept commands.  It will prompt with:

       Please enter the variable name:

       At this point you can enter one or  more  variable  names,
       one per line.  A blank line is a command to send a request
       for each of the variables (in  a  single  packet)  to  the
       remote  entity.  Each variable name is given in the format
       specified in variables(5).  For example

       snmptest zeus zeusMS zeusAgent
       Variable: system.sysdescr.0

       Will return some information about the request  and  reply
       packets, as well as the information:

       system.sysDescr.0 = "Unix 4.3BSD"

       Upon  startup,  the  program  defaults  to  sending  a GET
       Request packet.  This can be changed to a GET NEXT Request
       or  a  SET  Request  by  typing  the commands "$N" or "$S"
       respectively.  Typing "$G" will go back to the GET Request

       The  command "$D" will toggle the dumping of each sent and
       received packet.

       The command "$QP" will toggle a quicker, less verbose out­
       put form.

       When  in  the  "SET  Request"  mode,  more  information is
       requested by the prompt for each variable.  The prompt:

       Please enter variable type [i|s|x|d|n|o|t|a]:
       type a blank line at the prompt for the variable  name  to
       send the packet.

       At  the variable name line, typing "$Q" will quit the pro­

       Adding a "-d" to the argument list will cause the applica­
       tion to dump input and output packets.

       Adding a "-q" to the argument list will cause the applica­
       tion to use a quicker, less verbose output form.
