A trap is an OID that is sent by an SNMP agent when a particular event occurs. Traps are initiated by the SNMP agent and can be detected by SNMP management software, which can then either deal with the event directly or query the SNMP agent for more information.
To receive traps, you must configure the SNMP service. The SNMP service will receive the trap information and then forward it on somewhere; however, by default, this is nowhere, so any trap listeners you have running will not detect anything. The following steps show how to configure your SNMP Service to send traps to your computer.
Right-click My Computer and choose Manage.
In the left pane, double-click Services And Applications.
In the left pane, double-click Services.
Locate SNMP Service in the list of services in the right pane, right-click it and choose Properties.
Click the Traps tab.
In the SNMP Service Configuration window, type localhost in the text box and then click Add.
