is this a permanent error ?  Transient errors of this kind can be caused byu
a number of factors, such as intermittant faults on network equipment,
someone plugging/unplugging on your patchborad, or heavy traffic flows and
congestion.  SNMP used UDP for transport, its fast leightwieght , but
suffers from the problem of packets going awol, especially at high network
loads.   Another option is check your comunity strings, is publick valid,
and does it actually have RO rights as you think it does.  (Refer to the
ucd-snmp docs on this one, or the appropriate docs for your snmpd)
