	That may work for you, but ...

	The (version of the) snmp* tools I've used have a default MIB
	hierarchy which is used implicitly if no further command 
	argument is given after <server.address>.  YMMV, as this
	could be a build-time option for all I know.

	In order to have the entire MIB returned, I've needed to
	over-ride this default by specifying '.' (the root of the
	MIB hierarchy), as shown below.

snmpwalk -v 2c -c <communitystring> <server.address> '.'

	The quotes are not at all necessary, but make the dot easier
	for humans to see.
