[mrtg] SNMP Get Error

I tried to reply directly to Patrick Topping but my mail bounced.

Replace 'tcp' with '7', i.e.

The table from the MIB is
 1 => none
 2 => other
 3 => ip
 4 => icmp
 5 => gre
 6 => udp
 7 => tcp

Try using the purely numerical OID?  This might help.

This seems to be complaining about part of your hostname, but that might be
a knock-on effect of a parsing failure elsewhere.

Oops, you didn't hide the SNMP info and hostname...  If you replaced the
community string with random characters, make sure you don't have any
reserved chars (eg, :,&,@,|,!,space) in the real one.

There's the .com but the syntax looks fine.  Maybe it's the .tcp, so try
using the numerical value and see what happens.
