Further to installing SNMP on FreeBSD

Hello Guys
Gheist, first of all sorry for not coming back to you on the earlier question "http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/FreeBSD/Q_21791768.html" asked as I couldn't carry out the activity until recently for the fear of bringing down the Live Server. Anyway, I must say the upgrade went on flawlessly, thanks to you.
I was able to install BSNMP as suggesed using ports, but when the command to start the Service is executed, it only gives a message saying "Starting bsnmp" and returns the Prompt. When I check the running processes, I see no snmp service running. The ManageEngine still reports the same error.
I've also made the necessary changes in the rc.conf to start service on startup, but even after the system is rebooted, I do not find the smpt service running.

Any thoughts?

I was reading through the earlier steps given and I realised I missed out the step on Kernel recompilation. I upgraded using CVSUP, then straightaway installed the BSNMP from the Ports without the Kernel recompilation.
As far as the config file is concerned, yes, I am using the right one from the path mentioned by you.
But just for my information, Kernel recompilation would only make the upgrade take effect right? But does it have anything to do with BSNMP?

Applying security patches or not will not cause applications to break.
Of 14 system patches so far for 5.4 only couple deals with kernel, none with interface counters.
bsnmpd records problems with its config file into /var/log/messages correctly.

Hi Gheist
I did check the /var/log/messages and it said a couple of errors with the IP being bound and expected this and that... I worked as per it's indication on the line numbers and resolved all but one error. There has been progress too, now I am able to see the BSNMPD running in the processes but one error still remains in the /var/log/messages and that is this... "Jun 13 17:19:35 FireFox snmpd[76777]: send: Permission denied"
Although I am able to see BSNMPD running in the process, the ManageEngine still reports the same error... Does it have anything to do with the Permission denied error?
