Does this help you to do what you want to do?



I follow the directions in the link exposed. But, exactly what's the behavior that I will see in MOM console?.

I don't know if in the MOM 2005 console I see the computer that send SNMP traps to my MOM Server.

Do I need to setup additional components?
At this point, I'm guessing that what I sent to you didn't help out that much. Sorry, if that was the case...this is the rest of page: http://blogs.msdn.com/steverac/archive/2006/03/07/548517.aspx.

What exactly do you want to see -exactly what is the purpose of capturing this traffic? Maybe SNMP isn't the best way to do it...



Ok. I only want that MOM forward alerts (by means email notifications) from SNMP devices, (such as: router, switches, Checkpoint Firewall, UPS and Air Conditioning System). After I apply the directions in the link (http://blogs.msdn.com/steverac/attachment/548517.ashx), I don't receive any notification.
Okay, yes, then SNMP is the way to go...
Well, okay, try these links instead...
