[mrtg] Cisco Router Frame Relay OID Problem

I'm trying to get MRTG up and running on a client site monitoring the Frame 
Relay Interfaces to generate some stats. If I try to retrieve information 
from either the RFC1315 or the CISCO-FRAME-RELAY MIB through MRTG it 
doesn't work, failing with a 'no such name' error. Using GetIf, I can 
browse the MIB on the C2600 in question and using snmpget (CMU) from the 
command line I get the correct responses. I have attached the errors below:

Trying to return a value for the following which is the frCircuitState for 
the DLCI (I hope!) at


SNMP Error:
Received SNMP response with error code
  error status: noSuchName
  index 1 (OID:
SNMPv1_Session (remote host: "" [].161)
                  community: "public"

SNMPGET Problem for ifInOctets.502 ifOutOctets.502 sysUptime sysName on 
public at


[root at qvsnm1 mrtg]# snmpget public .
Name: transmission. -> INTEGER: 2

Which is the Up state. Basic MRTG functions work perfectly - does anyone 
have any ideas?
