you will need to setup your snmpd.conf file properly with the
appropriate community strings and acl's. The should be a tool to assist
with this. I installed from source so my conf file is
/usr/local/share/snmp/snmpd.conf but your might be under /usr/local/etc
there should be a script that was installed to help with config - I just
cannot remember what it is called, a search on the snmpd home page might
reveal some more clues.
