You have to add 1256 to the port number. Don't ask me why, its another
USRism that is totally FUBAR.

For example:

Update ServerPorts
Set SNMPUser = '.' + convert(varchar(5),
Where ServerID = x

I just did a USR SNMP Concurrency on Monday and it went fine. To
verify the SNMP, grab this file:

and unzip it to your RadiusNT dir (you don't have to overwrite your
mib.txt) then from the RaidusNT dir execute the command:

snmpwalk -v 1 community .

and you should see a list of who is on-line and the last digit for that
user. (replace with the ip of the USR and community with the
SNMP community, usually public, you have configured on the USR).
Compare that list to:

Select Port, SNMPUser
