Hi - I'm in a dead end:

I like to observe a BINTEC-router with mrtg.
I tried this:
#snmpwalk -v 3 -a MD5 -u read -A secretword -l authNoPriv
SNMPv2-MIB::sysDescr.0 = STRING: X2302

SNMPv2-MIB::sysObjectID.0 = OID:

DISMAN-EVENT-MIB::sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (678656500) 78 days,

SNMPv2-MIB::sysContact.0 = STRING: BINTEC

SNMPv2-MIB::sysName.0 = STRING: r01.quirlum.de

....list of the sensors...

o.k. - then this:
# cfgmaker read at
SNMP V3 requires a --username parameter as part of the User Security

ok. - cfgmaker know to use the protocol v3 - then this:
cfgmaker --username=`read` --authpassword=`secretword` 
output: nothing - no reaction...

Thanks!- Uve Hayden
