comment Delay between sending and recieving SNMP Traps within a machine
There is nothing in the configs and the firewall is off. I can't directly tell what is wrong with tcpdump. I even tried using 2 virtual machines as opposed to one, one for sending and the other for receiving traps. Needless to say there is still a delay. The receiving server gets packets immediately after the trap is sent, and then gets packets about 5 seconds later, which is when the trap is actually received.
