[mrtg] mrtg cisco catalayst switch

The model is 2900 series. I have other cisco catalysts but I'm not the one who set it up. I just notice that it has probably a local ip cause I see in the config of the mrtg is like this:

Target[]: 2:XXXXXX at
SetEnv[]: MRTG_INT_IP="" MRTG_INT_DESCR="FastEthernet0/1"
MaxBytes[]: 1000000 
#AbsMax[]: 1000000 

And my Linux box has an ip of I think I just need to enable snmp and put an ip to the catalyst but how? Any links?
I put a rollover cable yesterday and attach to the serial of my laptop but I didn't see anything even a single character. Is this possible? if not could be a faulty cable?

I know how to setup mrtg but don't know how to get the cfg for cisco catalyst switch

The catalyst is a pretty broad line.  Which catalysts?  Which OS? (some
can run native IOS, hybrid IOS/CatOS, or CatOS).  How old of code?
It matters a bit, because snmp is pretty broken in some really old

Fortunately, once you have created snmp credentials, it usually becomes
pretty easy.

cfgmaker.  Would recommend --ifref=ifname
