According to the Canopy documentation, the radios will only respond to
an SNMPv2c query. I can run snmpget -v2c -c Canopy 169.254.1.1
220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.0, and it works fine. But if I leave off the
-v2c, or substitute -v1 or -v3, it will fail.
In Argus, I can query our Cisco routers, so I know the configuration is
correct. But whenever I try to query a radio, it always fails. The
debugging page in Argus shows "UDP timeout" on the srvc::reason field.
Running tcpdump confirms that I get a response from the radio to the
snmpget command, but no response from the Argus command.

We've been around for about a year. We've got a mix of 2.4 and 900
installations. The 900 gear will work is some places the 2.4 won't,
including a few non-line-of-site locations. However, it seems to be a
lot less solid than our 2.4. It tends to drop the connection to the AP
more frequently. Motorola has been issuing new firmware updates to
address this, and they hope to have a solution by the end of June.
If you want to ask any more questions about Canopy, I'd be happy to
answer them off the list.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'm working on a new e-mail server to replace
this one, but I've updated squirrelmail in the meantime.
