RFC 3412, "Message Processing and Dispatching for the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)", December 2002

Source of RFC: snmpv3 (ops)

Errata ID: 6344
Status: Reported
Type: Technical
Publication Format(s) : TEXT

Section 4.2.2 says:

The elements of procedure for the dispatching of PDUs depends on the
   value of sendPduHandle.  If the value of sendPduHandle is <none>,
   then this is a request or notification and the procedures specified
   in Section 4.2.2.1 apply.  If the value of snmpPduHandle is not
   <none>, then this is a response and the procedures specified in
   Section 4.2.2.2 apply.

It should say:

The elements of procedure for the dispatching of PDUs depends on the
   value of sendPduHandle.  If the value of sendPduHandle is <none>,
   then this is a request or notification and the procedures specified
   in Section 4.2.2.1 apply.  If the value of sendPduHandle is not
   <none>, then this is a response and the procedures specified in
   Section 4.2.2.2 apply.

Notes:

This seems to be a typo where the word "snmpPduHandle" should be "sendPduHandle". I was torn apart between flagging this as technical or editorial. I decided to flag it as "technical" because this typo sent me on a wild-goose chase to find where/how the "snmpPduHandle" should be generated without finding anything.
