As Daniel rightfully pointed out....

I had a little trouble getting this after using mrtg - 14all draws the graphs and html on demand, not automatically each time mrtg runs.  Make sure you have the cgi configured correctly.  The reason I did my setup this way was so that I could have 2 separate configs tracking the same data from the same routers, just to make the transition a little easier.  It looked like two totally separate configs to mrtg, one was doing rateup, the other was doing rrd.  Completely seamless transition for my NOC and other areas that use it.  They didn't even know I had switched over until I told them.

The other piece of the puzzle is getting 14all.cgi or routers.cgi to work.
That's where he may need help if he's not up on CGI...
