In the smnpd.conf file will be a section that allows you to choose some
basic security in what you can and cannot 'see' with an SNMP query.
I know on a Fedora install I did all you could do be default was query
was basic system info and I had to change the snmpd.conf to allow me to
see the bits of the tree I needed to see.
If you have just the default snmpd.conf then find this section and
change 'system' for '.1' - or whatever level of the tree you want to be
# name incl/excl subtree mask(optional)
view systemview included .1
Then restart the snmpd service and give it a go.
This has a good description:
