The fact that it can get Bandwidth information confirms that SNMP communication is successful between the 2 systems. Therefore it appears to be one of two things:
1. The required SNMP agents (such as Net-SNMP) are not installed on the HPUX system.
See if you can get a response to any of the following OIDs using the Custom SNMP Wizard:
Let me know what you get.

Thanks Chris for your reply.
When I add a custom SNMP monitor using the OID's you advise all I get is this test
No SNMP Objects where retrieved from "ukserp02.jameswalker.co.uk" to collect SNMP Objects under "22.214.171.124.4.1.2021" using community "SNMPstring". Reason: Could not retrieve any results from servername.domainname.co.uk for OID: 126.96.36.199.4.1.2021.
Most SNMP Devices will not return any packets if the community provided is incorrect. Additionally, some SNMP Devices may be configured to respond only to a set of Authorized IP Addresses. If needed, the IP Address of the ipMonitor host machine will have to be added to that list.
Will ask our UNIX guys if there's the Net-SNMP installed on the UNIX system
If this has not already been answered for you, the Unix guys will need to install teh IExpress bundle for HPUX. It is not part of the OS installation by default, but can be located on the DVDs or the HP software site.
Hope this helps...
Will pass this on to our UNIX guys and let you know how we get on.
