Sure - where would you propose getting that particular version?

I did that, and this is what I get:
[smux_accept] accepted fd 13 from
smux: [smux_open_process] version 0, len 59, type 2
smux: [smux_open_process] smux peer: SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892.1
smux: [smux_open_process] len 47, type 6
smux: [smux_open_process] smux peer descr: Systems Management SNMP MIB Plug-in Manager
smux: [smux_open_process] len 2, type 4
smux: [smux_open_process] smux peer passwd:
smux: [smux_open_process] len 0, type 4
refused smux peer: oid SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892.1, password , descr Systems Management SNMP MIB Plug-in Manager
smux: [smux_close] sending close to fd 13, reason 5
smux: [smux_accept] peer on 13 failed authentication
smux: [smux_accept] Calling accept()

clearly somekind of authentication issue??  I've looked in Open Manage, but I'm not able to find out what password to use?
