I have no experience with devmon, so I can not give You any any advice
on that. According to your description, the problem lies elsewhere. 
What is the configuration? I presume the snmp server is host A and You 
are fetching it from host B. Are there any firewall rules restricting 
traffic between the hosts? Are there any restrictions
in /etc/hosts.{allow,deny} in either host A or B? Are there any
restrictions on traffic to and from localhost ( ? 

I will soon be using devmon in conjunction with Hobbit, so I would very
much like to learn from your experience.
