This is 2.8.12, running on HPUX 11.0

We added a device to the mrtg.cfg file.
Then ran ./mrtg mrtg.cfg with this result:
SNMPv1_Session (remote host: "" [].161
                  community: "public"
                 request ID: 511328975
                PDU bufsize: 8000 bytes
                    timeout: 2s
                    retries: 5
                    backoff: 1)
SNMPGET Problem for ifInOctets.7 ifOutOctets.7 sysUptime sysName ifDescr.7 on public at
SNMPGET: Failed to reach target: "7:public at". I tried multiple times! public at

Just for giggles, we ran the make-index script, but no index created.

Any idea what's wrong?
Need more information?

Thank you,
