snmp + no response from local host


I have installed snmp and is trying to configure mrtg.But when i run

snmpwalk -v 1 -c public localhost IP-MIB::ipAdEntIfIndex

it gives me
Timeout: No Response from localhost

parts of my snmp.conf file

com2sec local localhost public
com2sec mynetwork public

group MyRWGroup v1 local
group MyRWGroup v2c local
group MyRWGroup usm local
group MyROGroup v1 mynetwork
group MyROGroup v2c mynetwork
group MyROGroup usm mynetwork

view all included .1 80

access MyROGroup "" any noauth exact all none none
access MyRWGroup "" any noauth exact all all none

syslocation Linux (RH3_UP2), Home Linux Router.
syscontact Vivek G Gite <>

if i run
snmpwalk -v 1 -c public localhost
it lists all the ip address except the localhost ,
i need it to list the local host.

please can anyone tell me what is wrong.
Thanks for the help in advance.

Kind Regards
