I tried the following command in a dos box to create mrtg.cfg

perl cfgmaker public at webserver --global "workdir: D:\dir1\dir2" --
output mrtg.cfg

The result was (only the main part)

snmp error
no response received
snmpv1_session<remote host........>
at D:\mrtg\bin..\lib\mrtg2/snmp_util.pm line 627
snmpwalk problem for on public at webserver ::::v4only 
at cfgmaker line 918

What is a good editor with line # for windows ? I guess I need one as 
I don't want to count..:):)

Any ideas what this could be ?
I tried your command, but as new as I am to this, from where should I 
start the command ? location ?
