I have a Cisco 1720 setup in a T1 point to point configuration..  I have one on each side and each is plugged into a T1 circuit.  My goal is to have all trap messages sent to 192.168.1.10.  I see the trap messages coming in, however, I want any notifications or alerts that pertain to both it's serial interface and ethernet interface.  Below is the part of my config that pertains to this..  Let me know if it's correct..  I really don't care about receiving informational level alerts, mainly anything above that will be fine.  I can filter the trap messages if it's set to informational though...

Config looks right, I have seen multiple times that you need to remove the snmp config off of a router and then put it back in before it works, so like do a no snmp-server and then put it back in and see if that works.  Other wise I can give you some debug commands if it doesn't.

It's been working, however, I wasn't sure if it was set to receive all important information from all interfaces...  I guess I got it right the first time... Lucky me...  This is the first 1720 I've worked on.  I just implemented SolarWinds Orion network management software and trashed MRTG and PRTG.  This blows those away...

Anyway,

Thanks.

No problem with the config, but you might want to consider that if the serial link goes down, can it still reach 192.168.1.x to send the traps?

You  might also consider using the snmp-server source interface command to designate the source IP of the traps that get sent
