Check a device for SNMP

Medium Priority

Hello, I'm trying to setup a remote device with MRTG 2.17.1 for bandwidth monitoring, I have setup my local gateway already.  However, I first want to make sure that I'm able to poll the device with SNMP, which uses UDP port 161. I'm not able to ping the device currently ICMP packets are being blocked.

My question, is there a way to verify whether I'm able to poll the device with SNMP? Do I need to have ICMP filtering turn off for SNMP polling to work?

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
