    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    This doesn't appear to have anything to do with ifInOctets or
    what you're asking for. The SNMP agent you are trying to talk
    to is not responding. This is most likely either because there
    is no SNMP agent on the machine you are trying to talk to, or
    the community string you're trying to use is invalid.

    Thanks, but i know that the community string is good and that there is
    an agent on the device. The device is a NetScreen 50. I can get some
    information from the device, but somtetimes it fails and I get a "no
    response received" Is it possible for a SNMPGET request to time out?
    There is 15 hops between my station and the device. I have no SNMP
    problems with the devices on my LAN.
    Any hints would be appreciated.
