I am having trouble using the snmptrap command on Netview 5.1.2 on Solaris
I have configured a test trap under the netview enterprise
generic 6 and specific 60000001.
The command I am using is:
snmptrap unwnnvw01 . 6 60000001 0.
This appears to send a trap but nothing is recieved by trapd.log
If I remove the preceeding . from the enterprise id it sends a trap with no
fornat in the trapd.conf.
It preceeds the enterprise ID with a
.mgmnt.mib2.system.sysuptime. Rather confusing.
I also can not find any documnentation on exactly what and how the variable
work, hoe for example should I send the event description in my command, I
can send an octetstring but its not an event description. 
Can any one out there please explain to me how traps work.

thankyou Arthur
