I.e. UCD-SNMP try to get the syntax right in order and take full OID's:

Usage: snmpwalk [options...] <hostname> {<community>} [<objectID>]

Usage: snmpget [-Cf] [options...] <hostname> {<community>} [<objectID>

At least try:

# snmpget read_community_name system .

Check whether the '/etc/snmp/snmp/*' files are okay and your snmp-agent
is running ( # ps -ef | grep snmp ). Then make a portscan to port 161
(standard snmp) whether the port is open. If everything is alright you
should get an result.
