At least you are getting a different error message.  That means you've made
some progress. :)

This is in the FAQ:  http://faq.mrtg.org/FAQ021.html

I don't think that's your problem, yet, due to your snmpwalk results below.

> After trying the snmpget or snmpwalk I get the following:
> [root bin]# snmpwalk switch1.webintellects.com public system

You're right, that error is not very informative.  The only times I've seen
this specific error were when my polling box (the box you're running the
snmpwalk from) was not in the access list of the router I was polling.  I'm
not saying that's definitely what's happening here, that's just been my
experience.   I would suggest contacting the sysadmin of the switch you are
trying to poll and working with them to troubleshoot this.

If you are the admin, check your switch configuration:  are you using the
right community string?  How about an acl?

Hang in there.
