1st: get snmpget/snmpwalk or a similar package.
2nd: walk some relevant parts of the MIB.
3rd: only when you are able to get information from your device this way
     you can start thinking about MRTG.

"snmpwalk public ." should show what
targets to use.  Some "interfaces" won't show any data transfers.

"snmpwalk public ." should display system name
and more.

"snmpget public . ."
should provide the interface in and out counters.  They will probably
show up as zero for you.  Change snmpget into snmpwalk and skip the
instance (the ".2" appended to each OID) so you see all counters.

This should be enough for now.
