snmpget is failingto set the community string.

snmpget from the command line works, but when called from php it fails.

This is with net-snmp 5.2-rc4 (also tried rc2)

tcpdump for the command line snmpget works as expected, but for the php one, the community string is shown as blank

Reproduce code:

$snmp_value = snmpget("localhost", "public", "." , (500 * 1000), 3);

Expected result:
tcpdump showing a community string set to "public"

Actual result:
tcpdump showing a 0 length community string (the dump showed 0x04 0x00 for the element.
