Net::SNMP snmpv3 inform issues

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

OK - I've done my due dillegence and still can't figure this one out..
any help would be greatly appreceated.

I'm trying to write a perl script that will deliver an SNMPv3 INFORM to
a Net-SNMP server.

I can do it with snmpinform no problem:

[Client Side:]
# snmpinform -v 3 -u myuser -a MD5 -A mypassword -l authNoPriv 42 coldStart.0
Mon May 16 12:23:51

[Server Side]
May 16 12:14:09 snmpdserver snmptrapd[32046]: snmpdserver.localhost
[]: Trap , SNMPv2-MIB::sysUpTime.0 = Timeticks: (42)
0:00:00.42, SNMPv2-MIB::snmpTrapOID.0 = OID: SNMPv2-MIB::coldStart.0

But everytime I try it with Net::SNMP I get the following (in debug=1

root@simian:/usr/local/sentarus/sbin# ./test3
error: [2416] Net::SNMP::__ANON__(): Received
usmStatsUnknownEngineIDs.0 Report-PDU with value 6 during discovery
error: [2498] Net::SNMP::__ANON__(): Received
usmStatsNotInTimeWindows.0 Report-PDU with value 3 during
debug: [2533] Net::SNMP::_discovery_synchronization_cb(): discovery and
synchronization complete
error: [2287] Net::SNMP::__ANON__(): No response from remote host
SNMP ERROR: No response from remote host ''

The snippets of code used are:



 my $error;
    ($session,$error) = Net::SNMP->session(
        -hostname   =>  $host,
        -timeout    =>  3,
        -version    =>  3,
        -retries    =>  0,
        -debug      =>  1,
        -username      => $args,
        -authpassword  => $args,
print STDERR "Connected!\n";

    if ($error){
        print "SNMP ERROR: $error\n";
        die ("SNMP Error: $error");

    unshift (@binded,$timeticks, TIMETICKS, "1");
    unshift (@binded,$objectid, OBJECT_IDENTIFIER, $oid);

    my $result;
    unless ($result = $session->inform_request(
                -varbindlist        => \@binded,
print "SNMP ERROR: ";
print $session->error();
print "\n\n";

Any guidence would be very much appreciated as I have no clue what to
try from here!



p.s. some more info:
-Tried 3 different snmp servers (same net-snmp but on 3 machines) with
the same results
-Using Net::SNMP version 5.1
-Using Debian Linux
-snmpinform: UCD-snmp version: 4.2.3
-perl v5.8.1
