asuming you are using nat.
you need for example to recieve mail from outside ?  (port 25)

ip nat inside source static tcp <inside address server>  25 <interface outside> 25

and ad this to access-list
access-list XXX permit tcp any any eq smtp   or
access-list XXX permit tcp any (outside ip) eq smtp
remember to replace the whole access-list XXX

if you want to see if the port is open from the outside ( internet )
www.grc.com and use shields up !

If this is not what you mean post your config and explane more

If you don't have any access lists on any of your interfaces then the router is wide open.

I do have access lists, all I need to know is if SNMP is enabled.

You want to allow snmp through the router or you want to know if it is enabled on the router ?

If you want to allow it through I believe damalano answered your question.
