Well, it sounds like a sledge-hammer approach but yes, I think that would 

Though I would only change the UDP port.  Only applications like MLM send 
traps over TCP.   And you would want to leave that avenue open for 
processes which are expecting to use it.  But if you do this, then trapd 
would not see any external traps. but he'd still get all of netmon's and 
the other daemons because they use a domain socket right on the box and 
don't go out over the net. 

Of course that assumes you don't need any external traps for operators to 
see, for rulesets or ovactiond to automate from, or to be passed on to 
TEC.  And it doesn't improve your network bandwidth.

Sorry if I posted twice on this. Either there is a lag in email, or I miss 
Could I change the tcp and udp ports that netview listens on until I have 
control over the SNMP trap flood that our Cisco devices are throwing at 
NetView? I see the settings in serversetup. Would that have any ill 
effects on NetView? Would that give me the desired effect of dumping all 
incoming external traps?
