The correct service is the service provided by admninistration and rule building. (Read: Forbid them to use it, log it and if they keep abusing it ban them from the network.) – Hennes Jan 16 '13 at 13:34

SNMP is a network management protocol and BGP is a routing protocol. To restrict any type of traffic, you usually use a firewall not another type of protocol!
