[Xymon] rrd network graphs on windows check

I changed my script using your advices.
It looks like this now:

::# Define the temp variable 'hostname'
@For /f "tokens=1" %%* in (
    ) Do @Set "hostname=%%*"

::# Define the temp variables 'Inbound and Outbound'
@for /f "tokens=2" %%* in (
    'netstat.exe -e ^| findstr /i "Bytes"'
    ) do  @set "Inbound=%%*"
@for /f "tokens=3" %%* in (
    'netstat.exe -e ^| findstr /i "Bytes"'
    ) do  @set "Outbound=%%*"

::# Redirect output to a textfile
@> "scripts\netstat" (
rem @echo green %Date% %time%
  @echo client %hostname%.win32
  @echo [netstat]
  @echo %hostname% %Inbound% %Outbound%

This .bat script is creating the output: (My servers name is ghostwus)

client ghostwus.win32
ghostwus 65057048 3838258240

And indeed the message "reports netstat for an unknown OS" is gone and I
got some client data:

status ghostwus.netstat client Tue Jun 25 23:17:17 CEST 2013
ghostwus 65874964 3838527680

 <font color=DarkSlateBlue >Xy-checkwin-2.0.1</font>

But still no graph... :-(

I changed the message output to

client ghostwus.win32
ghostwus 65057048 3838258240

without any success.
