Yes, if the router or remote host is configured to allow this AND you use the
correct community name as defined in the router or remote host's SNMP

>From the MIB Browser, use the system.sysName MIB variable with a "MIB Instance"
of 0, specify the readWrite "Community Name", fill in the "SNMP Set Value" field
with your new hostname, and you should be able to "Set" the hostname. I have
never done this for a router but I have successfully done this on a remote unix

I hope this helps,

Hi all.
Do I have the possibility to set hostname on a router or server by SNMP-set
in MIB-Browser?
We use netview 6.0 on AIX 4.3.3.
Thanks in advance.
