Receiving snmp traps in perl on Win platform?

OOPS, posted this to moderated group perl.cpan.discu ss as
well, so it can take a while to get through, if it gets through at all
Otherwise sorry for duplicate posting

We need to set up a server 2003 (or a win XP system) to accept
and act upon traps sent out from a storage system. Responding
to various error conditions, this system can be fully configured to
send traps.

I am wondering what must be done on the trap-accepting side.

I am fairly new to SNMP but I managed to install the NET::SNMP
module from
and use it to interrogate and manipulate a remote SNMP agent (SNMP
service running on a XP-system), i.o.w. all the examples work.
I can do get and sets, and I can send traps to the remote system.
With a little utility like "SNMP Trap Watcher" I see the traps arriving.

Now I would like to create a perl script on the remote system to
listen for traps, and, at this point, to just show them on the console.
The NET::SNMP module seems not to support this.

I have been looking around I do find some examples of trap
listeners, but they all seem to work on unit or Linux only.

The module SNMP
seems promising, but when I try to install it with ppm, I get
ppminstall SNMP

Hi, I don't know very much at all about SNMP, but I have an application where I need to use it. I won't be doing too much with it, just simple queries for metric values and capturing traps.

Unfortunately, sourceforge is down at the moment, so I can't look at any of the documenation either. But I've read a little...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
