I just want to monitor traffic on one particular port on my router, and from
looking at the mrtg mailing list archive, i gathered that i could do this by
specifying the Target with "/" and "ip_that_is_on_that_port" in mrtg.cfg.
For an example:

Target[]: / at

but when i ran ./mrtg mrtg.cfg it gives me this error message:

SNMP Error:

I'm new with mrtg, so chances of me missing something in the config is
pretty great :)   Could anyone help me out?  Thank you.
