When I start cfgmaker with the following command:
./cfgmaker --global "WorkDir:/usr/local/apache/htdocs/mrtg" \ --global
"Options[_]:growright, bits" \--global "IconDir:icons" \ifref=ip
\snmp-options=:::::2c\ metro827 at metro827 > mrtg.cfg
I receive this error:
  can't resolve " --global" to IP address
 at /usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/../lib/mrtg2/SNMP_util.pm line 424
SNMPWALK Problem for public@ --global::::::v4only
 at ./cfgmaker line 825
WARNING: Skipping public@ --global: as no info could be retrieved
But when I do an snmpwalk everything seems to work fine:
snmpwalk  -v 2c -c  metro827 metro827 system SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 =

SNMPv2-MIB::sysORLastChange.0 = Timeticks: (0) 0:00:00.00
In the hosts file there is a mapping between the router and the IP
addres so I can ping the router by its name.
The strange thing is that I installed MRTG three times before and did
not have any problems. I am running RED HAT 9.0.
Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
