Hi, Jeff;
The reason why you cannot run nvsniffer etc. probably is the absence of the 
appropriate SRF file. It
means that you should create it.
After setting the permissions it should run. As I understand it if there is no 
SRF, permissions
cannot be set for that application, hence no permission. However, for snmpget 
there is also no SRF
and you can execute it with security turned on. What's the difference between 
the two programs as to
the permissions?

Best regards,
