Looks like I still have some to learn about PIX! That did the trick. Thanks!

Now, here's the next couple of questions.

A) For GetIF, where can I find a MIB file that I can drop into the MIBs
directory so that I can browse the PIX's Cisco MIB? I've been to Cisco's
website, and found a bunch of .my files, but they don't seem to do anything
for GetIF.
B) What information should be the most useful for me to monitor? I know one
thing I'd like to keep track of is # of people going through the PIX at any
one time. Anything else I should be worried about? Not knowing what the
Cisco MIB looks like for the PIX, I have no idea what it keeps track of...

Ah, you forgot to tell the PIX WHICH host it expects SNMP queries to come

snmp-server host inside a.b.c.d

Without that line, SNMP stays turned off on the PIX, at least on versions
4.x and 5.x.
