SNMP Connection Problems

I'm having problems using SNMP to connect to my router. When i use snmpwalk/get on a Windows 2000 machine (which is connected on the LAN) I can easily connect to the router and get all of results.... However when i try to use it from my linux box (Redhat 9) it is a different story ...

[root@spooked]# snmpget -v 1 -OS -c public system.sysUpTime.0
SNMPv2-MIB::sysUpTime.0 = Timeticks: (197938) 0:32:59.38
[root@spooked]# snmpget -v 1 -OS -c public system.sysUpTime.0
Timeout: No Response from
[root@spooked]# = Redhat Machine = Router

So why does it work on my windows machine and not on Redhat?? Could it be something to do with iptables stopping it? I can't see any unusally log entries in 'messages'

Thanks for your help

It shouldnt be anything to do with IP tables, sence you can get info back from at least onec source.. in this case:

I would look at the snmp config on, and see if you have read privleges set for you RH box (spooked).
