[mrtg] no response received

Hello all,

I am having a small issue with MRTG or the config of the box it is
running on. I am getting the error seen below:


"--base: Get Device Info on community at x.x.x.x:

SNMP Error:

no response received"


I have verified the setup of the target machine and I am able to pull
SNMP info from that box as seen below:


"snmpget -c community x.x.x.x .

SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.311. = Counter32: 7829"


The MRTG box is a basic Slack 10 box with a few nics for different
networks it is attached to. The default route is setup through eth1 and
eth0 is actually a bogus ( interface. The target is a basic
Windows 2003 Enterprise server.


My question is can you select which interface (eth0-x) that you send out
and receive the MRTG SNMP requests on? Or is it possible I am going in
the completely wrong direction.


Thanks for your time.
