Hi All,

I am new to MRTG.

When I do an snmpwalk for FW Accepted and FW Dropped using
snmpwalk ip-addr public .
I get .iso. = 891760

snmpwalk ip-addr public .
I get .iso. = 5452202

I have the following line in my .cfg file for Target

Target[]: at

But it doesn't seem to like the two OIDs separated by '&'. I looked at the
documentation and this should work. Any help will be greatly appreciated. 

Here is the error I am getting

C:\MRTG-2~1.12A\bin>perl mrtg bla.cfg
