Mario,

I was having a similar problem. I was trying to do demand polls from NetView
but they did not work, but a snmpget worked from the command line. There are
two EFIXes that should correct your problem.

Mario,

Do you an ATM Network?
Did you see the ping request on the server side?

I had the same problem and I fixed it by putting very small timeout and many
retries.
Since I changed to that setting I don't have any problem but I don't think
the
problem
is really fixed. Can you send me what kind of device you have to compare
with
my network because I also suspect something on the network. May be we have
something
in common that could point us to the solution.
