SNMP can be a hidden gem that seems to be overlooked sometimes during penetration testing. It is really cool the information you can obtain just using snmpwalk from the command line however the information can be lengthy and unless you are an SNMP OID library or feel like googling a bunch of different stuff it really helps to have tools such as snmpcheck available. Below we describe what snmpcheck, which is written in Perl, will accomplish for you and we also provide a couple of examples against Ubuntu and a Cisco router.

When running snmpcheck, a SNMP enumeration tool found in Backtrack Linux, against Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx or Backtrack Linux it is likely you will receive some errors in the output. The errors occur when the running processes from the Linux server are enumerated. Below we show example output from the command when the errors are intact as well as a quick fix so you won’t have to modify the output for reports.
