Hi Patrik,

didn't know that. Over the weekend I will setup different SNMP "providers" to 
test the original script against and observe what should be the expected 
behaviour, because I have been testing against the JVM SNMP monitoring 
facility and the old script wasn't working very well (as I come to think about 
it, maybe it was because I was running the script against my own machine, 

Thanks for the feedback,

Hi Duarte,

I've looked over the new script and have a concern with the design change,
as one of the goals of the new snmp-brute script was to increase
speed. This was achieved by having one thread sending requests out and
another thread listening with a pcap socket. As we're dealing with UDP and
a service that doesn't respond, unless we have the right community, this
design successfully made the script a lot faster than the initial version.
So I think we should try to address the issues we're seeing while keeping
the current design.
