SNMP v4 does not exist. According to RFCs the only standard is SNMPv3. Older 
verisons like v1 or one of the 2's are still supported. In fact, v1 is beeing 
used most.

So your error message comes for some other origin.

In order to get your setup running try to get snmp data from your webserver at 
all. Start using the snmpwalk command. If you use net-snmp the command should 
look like

snmpwalk -v1 -cpublic <server-ip> .system

If you have an other community string than "public" change the command line 
according. If snmpwalk does work try cfgmaker which comes together with mrtg.

Good luck.
