I am trying to forward snmp messages to my 9.7 server. I think I did it correctly but how do I make sure they are being received? I can see the syslog messages in the console and the web access. How do I see the snmp messages?
Be sure that you have your device set to forward SNMP traps. Kiwi doesn't receive SNMP messages (port 161), only SNMP Trap messages (port 162)
Also check that you have Kiwi configured to receive snmp traps and the port matches what your device is sending - this wasn't on by default for us.
Note from the docs - don't use traps for change notifications :)
