Here's one simple example:


The .1 on the end is the starting point for the walk.  .1 is the root of the hierarchy so that should walk everything available.  I explicitly did version 2c, but depending on the implementation you are walking you may need to indicate '-v 1' 

There is some way to ask net-snmp not to resolve the OID names for you so you can just get the numbers but I can't remember it off the top of my head.

One thing that can often hang you up is a lot of devices or the firewalls in front of them will block snmp access or UDP port 161.
