SNMP/MRTG on a Firewall Gateway
I'm having a small issue setting up MRTG to poll a linux box acting as a Firewall/Gateway. The iptables are set up to NAT, which I think may be causing the issue.

I'm not too up on iptables, so I am not too certain where to start.

I did find a similar problem on the forum. It was solved with a simple FQDN added to /etc/host but that hasn't resolved the issue for me.

Here is a snip of the error I receive.


root@mrtg:~# cfgmaker public@<ip_address>

EDIT: Found typo in the servers configuration.

Wanted to add that "cfgmaker public@localhost" and "cfgmaker public@localhost" works when logged into the server I want to monitor.
