Q1200035: Is the Windows SNMP Trap Service required to send and/or receive SNMP Traps with your Network Component?
No, there is no Windows SNMP Traps Servics required for the ActiveXperts Network Component SNMP Trap operations.
If you have the Windows SNMP Traps Service running, Network Component will NOT be able to receive incoming SNMP Traps. Network Component will still be able to send out SNMP Traps.
To listen, Network Component opens an UDP socket (default port 162) to listen for incoming traps; only one process at a time can listen for packets on such port. For that reason, the Windows SNMP Trap Service should not be running.(viewed: 347)
