Enter the following:

snmp-server enable
snmp-server community
snmp-server host inside poll
snmp-server enable traps alloll

Where  in the community. 'public' is default and highly advise to change it to something else


> Do I need to set the snmp host to the outside interface and then set up an ACL for snmp traffic?
  Yes. --> snmp-server host outside
  Unless you're restricting any udp traffic outbound over the VPN, your PIX should be able to send SNMP traps to the net mgmt station.


snmp-server host inside
snmp-server community   <== string is a password. Do not use "public" or "private"
snmp-server enable traps
