in reply to Perl Net::SNMP returns 1 instead of the desired outcome

G'day vlad3848,

I'm not a user of Net::SNMP; however, the documentation for get_result() seems to suggest you're receiving a boolean value. From get_request() - send a SNMP get-request to the remote agent:

"... In non-blocking mode, a true value is returned when no error has occurred. ..."

If you look further down the documentation to the EXAMPLES section, I think 1. Blocking SNMPv1 get-request for sysUpTime may provide what you're looking for.
