to the shell and may confuse things.  For example, 'read' is a shell
command that waits for input, and backquotes will try to execute it, so
your command will hang waiting for input... which is what you are
experiencing, yes?

Mua! Yes - a absurd attempt! But I think, I find the source for the problem:
-> https://lists.oetiker.ch/pipermail/mrtg/2006-November/032059.html My OS
arrived with mrtg 2.14.5 and the failure-output is like the above : "SNMP
V3 requires a --username parameter as part of the User"

Thank! Uve
