unable to do snmpwalk from monitoring server to snmp client

I have ServerA and ServerB, ServerA is monitoring server and ServerB is SNMP client. SNMPWALK from serverA to serverB is getting timeout error, please help me to resolve this issue. I am able to do snmpwalk from serverA to other servers so there is no problem with ServerA. network port opened 161, 162 and 199 opened on routers in bidirectional way between source ip and destination ip so there is no issue with network as well. some configuration issue with ServerB, community string is same between two servers.

Have you verify the version of snmp is configured as v2 on the client? Is this the only Centos 6 client you are having issue?

On ServerB

cat /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf
rocommunity string

On ServerA
snmpwalk -v1 -cstring ServerB
Timeout: No Response from ServerB

FYI. I am able to do snmpwalk from ServerB to ServerA.

Do you have snmpd running on target and 161 udp allowed in system-config-firewall-tui ?
Or:
Can you run snmp query locally on that machine?

Thanks for all your support guys. Issue resolved. This issue is due to firewall, on firewall after enabling bidirectional access to 161 & 162 UDP port from monitoring server to snmp client host then it started working.
