Using SNMP to monitor a Netgear FVS336G, I can access all of the interfaces statistics except for PPP1. We have two PPP connections but SNMP only reveals:

ifDescr1    03 May 2011 08:52:16    "lo"
ifDescr2    03 May 2011 08:52:26    "eth0"
ifDescr3    03 May 2011 08:52:38    "eth0.2"
ifDescr4    03 May 2011 08:51:50    "eth0.3"
ifDescr5    03 May 2011 08:52:03    "eth0.4"
ifDescr6    03 May 2011 08:52:03    "ppp0"

Has anyone seen this before? Any ideas how I can monitor both PPP connections? There is, as far as I can tell, no specific MIBs for an FVS336G.

if the ifdescr table doesn't show it, it's either not supported or it's a bug. I can't find anything searching the netgear site, so it might be worthwhile to open up a support ticket with them asking about it.
