Hello all,

I have been using MRTG on and off for a couple of years now.  I am
currently working on a new deployment and some customization but have a
My system is set up on FreeBSD 5.1.2 using MRTG 2.10.14 and 14all.cgi.  I
searched the list archives and found someone with a similar problem, but I
did not see any answer that worked for me.

When I run cfgmaker against a 5000 with old code (3 train), cfgmaker fails
to learn the cisco port names ($if_port_name).  Could this simply be
because of old code? Does anyone know at what revision this problem goes

When I use snmpget with snmp v1 and the same OID that cfgmaker uses I do
get the port names.

Second problem is on a Cat6500.  When cfgmaker runs it does learn the
$if_port_name(s) but there is no --ifdesc=
 option that will include the catalyst port name on the Title [target] :
I was able to make a modified cfgmaker that worked to fix this, but it
failed at making routers look right :)

Thanks for any help.
