Hi all!

I have tried to configure mrtg to monitor our network, but cfgmaker fails to
create the config files.
Here is the error message:
--base: Get Device Info on xyz at 192.168.aaa.bbb:
SNMP Error:
no response received
SNMPv1_Session (remote host: "192.168.aaa.bbb" [192.168.aaa.bbb].161)

 at /usr/local/bin/cfgmaker line 796
WARNING: Skipping xyz at 192.168.aaa.bbb: as no info could be retrieved

cfg_maker.sh contains:
cat gen_cfg_NEW.sh

cfgmaker --global 'WorkDir: /usr/local/mrtg-2/htdocs'  \
          --global 'Options[_]: growright' \
          --output /usr/local/mrtg-2/cfg/mrtg.cfg    \
          --subdirs=HOSTNAME \
          --community=xyz \

But snmp works:
snmpwalk 192.164.aaa.bbb xyz system
system.sysDescr.0 = Cisco Systems WS-C6506-E
Cisco Catalyst Operating System Software, Version 7.6(10)
Copyright (c) 1995-2004 by Cisco Systems

system.sysObjectID.0 = OID: enterprises.9.5.45
system.sysUpTime.0 = Timeticks: (145494940) 16 days, 20:09:09.40
system.sysContact.0 = SYNERGON Informatika Rt.
system.sysName.0 = blablabla
system.sysLocation.0 = TK-G9
system.sysServices.0 = 2

Please help solving this problem.
Could it be a misconfiguration on the switch?

Kind Regards
