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.

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
Since I changed to that setting I don't have any problem but I don't think
is really fixed. Can you send me what kind of device you have to compare
my network because I also suspect something on the network. May be we have
in common that could point us to the solution.
