SNMP Setup on SBS 2003

I am trying to setup snmp for the first time. I have installed the snmp service and the wmi component in SBS 2003. I went into security and checked "Accept SNMP Packets from any host". On one of my client inside the network i have some softare installed that queries the snmp server but i am not getting any response. I have no firewall installed on both computers.  Is there something im missing here?

Usually the say SNMP works is that you need to setup a community string and TRAPS.  This is like a password that the client and monitoring station must have in common.  

On the client machine, you can go into the SNMP service and click the TRAPS tab. Enter a Community name (like PUBLIC or call it what ever your want).  Then enter the IP address of the monitoring station.

Then click the Security tab and setup an accepted community name with the proper security.  

you should be able to find out how exactly to set this up using the manual that came with your software that queries  SNMP...
