You don't mention if you have tried using any other tool to coax SNMP V2 
replies from the LD.

The LD is notorious for being tricky to setup. Getting it to respond to SNMP 
is one of those sticky wickets. For example, you have to tell the LD to 
expect SNMP requests from specific hosts using the "snmp-server host 
xx.xx.xx.xx" statment.

So the first question is, Does it respond if you query it with 
snmpwalk/getif from your MRTG box?
