working with our PRTG server setup SNMP on one of our Cisco ASA devices
looking to setup on PIX firewall
using paessler SNMP tester v. 5.1.3
I have the community string and designated where my snmp-server resides
testing to PIX firewalls no; all other firewalls so far okay
is there a problem with SNMP on the old PIX firewalls?
all help is greatly appreciated

Have you been through this document yet?

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/security/pix-500-series-security-appliances/13822-pixsnmp.html

also check your access-lists

snmp polling reads the information from the device, snmp traps are notices sent from the device.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_Network_Management_Protocol

you may also need to import the MIB's, but I'm pretty sure PRTG comes with all the cisco MIB's

this link from paessler may help too.
