I think trapd truncates the message it puts
in trapd.log (at least on my system), so if
you look in trapd.log for these messages, you
miss a very important piece of information:
who is pounding the complaining device with
all those "Incorrect Community Names" ?  If
you go to the Event Viewer screen, find the
event message, double click on it, you'll see
the full message, and at the tail end of it
should be the offending party's IP address or name.
Cisco routers report this info, NT servers don't.
Not sure about other devices, but try, maybe
you'll be lucky.

Have I been here before.....?
