You're right in your assessment, in the configuration I have below, I'm
querying localhost from the command line and 192.168.1.4 from tkined. That
was a mistake on my part. I mistyped the command line.
I am able to successfully query 192.168.1.4 from my machine on the command
line, but not tkined. Sorry for the typo.

You have a transport address configuration problem. Note that

The error message indicates that it is not possible to talk to agent.
So the problem is not an SNMP problem but an IP address configuration
