I take it that your Solaris box is not running NetView. 

I am sure that there are more ways to skin this cat but here' one 

Then you can install the snmptrap command which is part of MLM and use it. 
 Unlike the snmptrap which comes with NetView, it is completely 
stand-alone and uses no shared libraries nor security.  So you could just 
install MLM there, grab the executable, and then de-install MLM.  The 
syntax is a bit different than the snmptrap from NetView proper, so get it 
working before you delete everything.

NetView 6.0.3 AIX 4.3.3
Our Cisco events are boing sent via syslog to our Cisco Works box. We are 
processing the events with a script on that box that filters and assigns 
operational priority of the messages. If it is a message that we choose to 
alert on, I am looking for a way to get the messages to the NetView box. 
The Cisco Works box is a Solaris machine. Is there a trap generator that 
can be called to send a trap to NetView? We don't want to send all of the 
traps from the Cisco devices directly to NetView because we found that our 
2000+ Cisco devices practically kill NetView with the trap volume. That is 
the pupose of the pre-processing on the Solaris box. Has anyone attempted 
anything like this. Suggestions? Thank You!
