I think snmptrap will by default sent traps to udp 162. If you for some
changed the listening port for trapd in /etc/services, you need to specify
-p [port number] in your snmptrap command to have trapd capture your trap.
Please check the /etc/services file for the configured trapd port.

Subject: Re: snmptrap script...
Hmmmm... thanks for the response.
This is weird. The wraps only appear in this email, everything is OK in the
actual script. I tried using the actual hostname... no luck. I run the
script, it executes for a second, and then gives me my prompt back. Seems
OK, but nothing shows up in trapd.log, but it worked fine for you...
Well, anyone else with any ideas??
