I am trying to set up SNMPv2 monitoring on some 4610's. After changing the community string and un-commenting the lines in the snmpd.conf file for the basic MIBs, when I run an snmpwalk I keep getting a timeout: no response from localhost.  suggestions?

Troy, apologies for the delay. Just wanted to verify that you changed the snmpd.conf file "agent behavior" to enable something other than the loopback like the following:



#  Listen for connections from the local system only

#agentAddress  udp:

#  Listen for connections on all interfaces (both IPv4 *and* IPv6)

agentAddress udp:161,udp6:[::1]:161
