You can snmpwalk a device if you're on that subnet but not if you're 
on another subnet?  Have you sniffed the traffic to see if you're 
getting a response from the switch?  Perhaps it does have a route 
back to you or perhaps an ACL only permitts queries from the local 
subnet.  We use private IPs for all of our network hardware that 
doesn't rewrite packets (ie all but routers), which means we have to 
locally route private subnets to access them from anywhere other than 
physically on that subnet.  Make sense?
