    Ports 161 and 162 are used for snmp traps. This is a method to read data from devices that are running snmp.

    yeah... i forgot to pay more attention to that side of it. :-P

    But anyway, it's good you have the port closed. Would've left a potential way to check out printers and stuff on the network.
