Unanswered Question

Hi all, Can anyone tell me how I get my cisco switch to send snmp traps to inform me of certain statuses etc, and what program can I use to receive these traps ?

I have this problem too.

Though since you are doing this you should consider SNMPv3 where available -- it's less important for traps than for access, but still it is better to encrypt.

On the other side there are a ton of options from various NMS solutions, to simple SNMP-to-syslog trap translators syslogng/snmptrapd.
