Specifies the port on which the End Point Operations Management agent listens for SNMP traps

By default, the agent.properties file does not include this property.

Typically SNMP uses the UDP port 162 for trap messages. This port is in the privileged range, so an agent listening for trap messages on it must run as root, or as an administrative user on Windows.

You can run the agent in the context of a non-administrative user, by configuring the agent to listen for trap messages on an unprivileged port.

Specify an IP address (or to specify all interfaces on the platform) and the port for UDP communications in the format


To enable the End Point Operations Management agent to receive SNMP traps on an unprivileged port, specify port 1024 or higher. The following setting allows the agent to receive traps on any interface on the platform, on UDP port 1620.
