I'm guessing it has to do with the 2 "@" symbols in your target.  MRTG probably has trouble parsing the line.

Subject: [mrtg] cfgmaker error: No response from remote host

I have changed a switch and want to run cfgmaker again. But when I run
"cfgmaker --global 'WorkDir: /srv/www/htdocs/mrtg/"
--global 'Options[_]: growright' --output /etc/mrtg/switch.cfg
--subdirs=HOSTNAME --ifdesc=nr --ifdesc=descr --ifdesc=alias
--ifref=name He at pr@" I get error "SNMPWALK Problem for
ifDescr on He at pr@ No response from remote host
'' at /usr/bin/cfgmaker line 147.

I can use snmpwalk to get information out of the switch - both version
1 and 2 (snmpwalk -v 2c -c He at pr and snmpwalk -v1 -c He at pr

Thanks for any help.
