Hi all,

I seem to have problem with an mrtg config file, when trying to monitor
the cpu on a remote W2k server.  The following target statement works
fine if target and MRTG are on the same machine:

. at localhost

But if I try to monitor a remote server using:

. at tsm1mt0301

I received:

SNMP Error:
Received SNMP response with error code
 error status: noSuchName
 index 1 (OID:
SNMPv1_Session (remote host: "tsm1mt0301" [].161)
                 community: "public"
                request ID: 251399000
               PDU bufsize: 8000 bytes
                   timeout: 2s
                   retries: 5
                   backoff: 1)
SNMPGET Problem for . .
sysUptime sy
sName on public at tsm1mt0301

The oid works with getif polling the remote.

Is there a special way to define target with monitoring a remote

Thanks in advance,
