I am a beginner on NetView and SNMP, and new to this mailing list. I have a question on sending traps.

I have installed NetView on my Windows XP PC, and would like to use it to manage our Linux machines (RedHat 9.0).

There is net-snmp 5.0.9 package coming with RedHat, and I could use net-snmp's "snmptrap" command to send traps to other Linux machines. Those traps could be captured by snmptrapd daemon.

However, if I used "snmptrap" sending traps to my win PC, trapd daemon did not capture any trap at all. Using tcpdump, I found that the package was not sent at all.

Could somebody give me some hint on what might be wrong?

Here are the commands I used to send traps:

        snmptrap -v 1 -c public  "" "" 6 99 ""
        snmptrap -v 2c  -c public  "" .

Thanks in advance!
