Thx James,

Completed those steps, but now when I start up Netview - port 162 is not
listening at all.

Is there something else that I need to configure?

You are using NetView for Windows?  The most likely the issue is the
Microsoft Trap Service.  It will only pass SNMPv1 traps to NetView.  My
guess is that your Sun N1 Manager is sending SNMPv2 traps and they are
being thrown away by the MS Trap Service.

In the 7.1.4 FixPack 3 and FixPack 4 Release Notes are step-by-step
instructions how to stop using the MS Trap Service and have trapd monitor
the TCP and UDP ports directly.

             Please respond to

Hey everyone,

I have a question regarding Netview and receiving traps.  I am attempting
to integrate Sun N1 Manager into Netview using SNMP traps.  Sun N1 manager
monitors Sun hardware for problems and generates traps.  I have configured
it to forward events to our NV714 server, but they never seem to arrive -
nothing in the Event view, or when I view the trapd.log file.  I am able to
receive the traps on another host by running snmptrapd.

It seems that I am able to receive traps from all other applications except
this one...

Here's the netstat output

C:\WINDOWS>netstat -an | grep 162
  TCP                LISTENING
  UDP            *:*


The only thing that I can think of is that Netview is listening from traps
on a TCP port, and not? the UDP port?  Can I configure NV to listen on both
UDP/TCP ports?

Any suggestions?
