The SNMP Trap Adapter configured as the trap exploder should listen for traps on the standard port that network devices use when forwarding traps. Typically, this is port 162.

If another application is listening for traps at this port, the application should be moved and the trap exploder can forward needed traps to the application’s new location. The SNMP Trap Adapter is usually a better choice for forwarding traps than other third-party software applications because the adapter can be limited to the forwarding function.

The second instance of the SNMP Trap Adapter can listen on any port, but the trap exploder must be configured to forward the appropriate traps to this port.
