If you are not seeing traps, in the trapd.log, nor any messages about invalid traps, then your DircetWay box is not sending them, period.
There is no way that trapd can get a trap and not log it or issue an error message.

You can get him to trace everything that he sees by first configuring trapd to run with the -x option, (hex dump all packets), using serversetup, and then toggling the trace off and on with "trapd -T" from the command line.  But to really prove that nothing is coming in on port 162 udp, you will need to get an iptrace.

[nv-l] Iintegration of HECL DirecWAY with Tivoli Netview

Hello Everybody,

We are having Tivoli NetView(7.1.3) on AIX 4.3.3.

Recently we installed HECL DirecWAY to monitor our VSATs (DPUs). These VSATs(DPUs) are SNMP compliant but can not by pass HECL DirecWAY NMS. This NMS(DirecWAY ) has been installed on HP platform and is collected information about the status of VSATs(DPU).

Now, we wanted to integrate DirecWAY with our Tivoli NetView.

This NMs(DirecWAY) is also configured to send traps to NetView server. But we are not getting these traps in trapd.log.

Ideally, we wanted these traps on TEC so that we can execute some TEC rules as per our requirement.

Any idea how to achieve this?
