Replace the forward slash after ifInErrors and ifOutErrors with a back slash
to read...


You shouldn't need to escape any characters.

Subject: [mrtg] Help with using interface names

I am trying to use inferface names instead of port as I have hundreds of DSL
clients. Hacked around with / or \ and other stuff, with no luck.
What am I doing wrong ?

Here is the router config:

interface ATM2/0.508 point-to-point
 description (Ken Feller) Lorna Greening
 no ip route-cache
 no ip mroute-cache
 pvc 1/508
  encapsulation aal5ciscoppp Virtual-Template3

Here is mt MRTG config:

### Interface 1 >> Descr: 'ATM2/0.508' | Name: '' | Ip: '' | Eth: '' ###

#Target[]: \ATM2/0.508:monitor at

:monitor at
