When scanning UDP 161, I see that snmp-sysdescr is returned (assuming
that the default snmp community string is "public").

1) Can the community string be changed or multiples included so that
snmp-sysdescr is displayed if you have multiple community strings in

2) Where is the snmp-sysdescr request call made?   Is it within a script
(if so, which one), or is the functionality programmed within NP itslef?
