ipMonitor traps

Any agent you configure to send traps to ipMonitor must use the same IP address and port combination.

If the Windows SNMP Trap Service is enabled on the ipMonitor host computer, it may conflict with the ipMonitor SNMP Trap Listener. Both are bound by default to port 162.

The POP3 User Experience monitor delivers an email to the SMTP server on port 25 for the recipient address you specify. The monitor then logs in to the POP3 Mail Server on port 110 and retrieves the LIST of queued mail.
