All you need is a trap receiver application, and to have udp/162 unfiltered from agent to PC. There are plenty of trap receivers available including many free/open source tools. I personally use Net-SNMP's snmptrapd on FreeBSD and HPOV Network Node Manager on Solaris. Other people might be able to recommend other trap receivers.
