I just began working for my school's networking department, and I was assigned a project to develop a program to listen for traps from SNMP network devices.
The device I am testing with an Access Point Cisco Aironet 1242, I have been looking on line on how to do this, and I have come across multiple commands like snmptrapd in unix, but I do not see how I can apply this commands to create a program.
I need to use Perl, so I am already able to log in into the access point with Expect, and start the enable mode, but once I am there I do not know what to do. My program must listen to linkup and linkdown traps.
I have been reading the AP man entries (via
? and then
<ENTER> on the terminal), but I have not seen something that I could use.
Any advise will be greatly appreciated.
