I've been trying to get the most recent version of MRTG (2.10.13) to 
monior the DSL users on my Paradyne DSLAM DSL equipment and have been 
running into troubles...

Some investigation has uncovered that you could use the following format 
with MRTG v2.8.12:

		community\@card at IP
	  IE: public\@s1 at     (or possibally without the first @ 

that does not work with 2.10.13

----- output excerpt --------------------------
SNMP Error:
Received SNMP response with error code
   error status: noSuchName
   index 0
SNMPv1_Session (remote host: "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx].xxx)
                   community: "public at s1"
                  request ID: 1210588935
                 PDU bufsize: 8000 bytes
                     timeout: 2s
                     retries: 5
                     backoff: 1)
  at /usr/local/mrtg-2.9.22/bin/../lib/mrtg2/SNMP_util.pm line 458

looks like it's trying "community\@card" as the community name.

Is this a known problem?
Does anyone know of a workaround?

I'd prefur not to run two instances of MRTG (2.8.12 to monior the DSLAMs, 
the current version to monitor the routers and servers), can anyone offer 
any other options?
