Assuming you have an SNMP daemon of some sort running (e.g UCD-SNMP, NET-SNMP,
etc) then it's as simple as pointing MRTG at it. It sounds like you don't have
it running as you mention you see "Connection refused" messages. Have a look
at "http://www.net-snmp.org", I use this without any hassles on Redhat Linux
(works on a variety of *nix). Another thing to make sure is that the host your
trying to query is not firewalling your requests (make sure you permit UDP
Example below of measuring the load on a remote Linux host:
Target[load]: .22.214.171.124.4.1.2021.10.1.5.1&.126.96.36.199.4.1.2021.10.1.5.1:community at 1
If your still stuck, let me know and I'm sure we can assist you through.
